Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Historically Black Colleges and Universities—Film Screening and Discussion

Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Historically Black Colleges and Universities tells the story of the emergence and the ongoing impact of historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) within American education, culture, abolitionism, and civil rights.

Join the Champlain College community in watching this incredible film followed by a panel discussion from 5-6pm with two of its creators: Stanley Nelson, Film Director, and Dr. Van Dora Williams, Archival Researcher. This discussion will be moderated by Dr. Rosalynne Whitaker-Heck.

There are three ways to participate: Attend the on-campus screening event and discussion in the auditorium from 3:30-6:00; watch both the film and the discussion via Zoom from 3:30-6:00; or view the film (link below) on your own through the Library or free through PBS and then join the live virtual discussion on Zoom from 5:00-6:00. Food will be provided at the in-person event.
