"Tell Them We Are Rising" explores the pivotal role historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) have played in shaping American history, culture and national identity. Go behind the scenes of this documentary with filmmaker Stanley Nelson, Dr. Michael Lomax, President of United Negro College Fund, and Dr. Mary Schmidt Campbell, President of Spelman College.

Nelson tells us the film is one of the hardest he's ever had to make, because it covers about 170 years of history. Find out more about what this film, the first ever to tell the whole history of HBCUs, is so important.
