Event's DetailsRiverRun International Film Festival will host a free screening of Indie Lens Pop-Up selection "Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Black Colleges and Universities," by 2015 RiverRun Master of Cinema honoree Stanley Nelson and '15 RiverRun juror Marco Williams, and edited by RiverRun alumnus and Wake Forest Documentary Film Program graduate Monica Berra. "Tell Them We Are Rising" explores the pivotal role historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) have played over the course of 150 years in American history, culture, and identity. This film reveals the rich history of HBCUs and the power of higher education to transform lives and advance civil rights and equality in the face of injustice. A panel discussion will follow the screening.
RiverRun’s Indie Lens Pop-Up, sponsored by Wells Fargo, is a neighborhood series that brings people together for film screenings and community-driven conversations. Featuring documentaries seen on PBS’s Independent Lens, Indie Lens Pop-Up draws local residents, leaders and organizations together to discuss what matters most, from newsworthy topics to family and relationships.
