«Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Historically Black Colleges and Universities» is a PBS documentary and multimedia project that explores the pivotal role Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) have played in American history, culture, and national identity.

Directed and produced by award winning filmmaker Stanley Nelson — founder and president of Firelight Films, the “Tell Them We Are Rising” project gathers and shares a vivid mosaic of stories from HBCU students, faculty, staff, and alumni that illustrate the ideals of democracy, equality, and pursuit of the American Dream.

“To tell this important and complex story, it is essential that our documentary highlights personal accounts, letters, diaries, photographs, and even home movies of the people who have lived the HBCU experience,” says director and producer, Stanley Nelson. The two-hour “Tell Them We Are Rising” feature documentary will be broadcast on the Emmy-Award winning PBS prime-time television series, Independent Lens, in 2017.

Tell Them We Are Rising is an unprecedented two-hour PBS documentary film and interactive platform that captures the vibrant, moving and complex 150-year history of HBCUs. The documentary will use original material and accounts to tell an intimate story of Americans who would not be denied a higher education, demonstrating how HBCUs have influenced generations of Americans and shaped the landscape of our nation.
