On this edition of Your Call, filmmaker Stanley Nelson joins us to discuss Tell Them We Were Rising, a documentary that examines the impact Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBUCs) have had on American history, culture, and identity.
Nelson's parents were the product of HBUCs. There was no other place they could go to school, but they refused to be denied a higher education. How have these universities changed the course of history and advanced equality and justice in the US?
