In honor of Black History Month, The Grandin Theatre will have a special screening of the documentary "Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Black Colleges and Universities" on February 19th at 7:15 pm.
This film is Free Admittance and first come first serve!
A haven for Black intellectuals, artists and revolutionaries-and path of promise toward the American dream-Black colleges and universities have educated the architects of freedom movements and cultivated leaders in every field. They have been unapologetically Black for 150 years. For the first time ever, their story is told.
