In the decades before the civil rights movement was possible in the American landscape, another sector quietly, but steadily worked to erode the inequities in American life.  Though much of its history was eclipsed by the explosiveness of the 1960s, the nation’s historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) shaped black life creating a Black middle class and dismantling segregation.
Building a vibrant mosaic of events, stories and characters, "Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Black Colleges and Universities" traces the persistent belief in education’s power to transform and advance the black community even in the country’s most dire eras of racial intolerance.
