Feb 19, 2018

For more than a hundred years, America’s historically black colleges and universities have graduated many of our most dynamic and influential citizens. However, some educators worry a quarter of those schools could be gone within the next 20 years. A new PBS documentary airing Monday, February 19 on PBS explores the complex history of HBCUs. We caught up with Stanley Nelson, the filmmaker behind “Tell Them We are Rising: The Story of Black Colleges and Universities.”
