In celebration of Black History Month, the Board of Social Justice and Outreach invites you to join us in watching and discussing the documentary “Tell Them We Are Rising,” which examines the impact Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) have had on American history, culture, and national identity. Beginning with the earliest attempt at education to today’s campuses, still in existence, the 90-minute documentary will give you a glimpse of this 150-year-old story, finally being told. We want to celebrate the accomplishments and contributions of our nation from the Black community. As the UCC’s very own Rev. Traci Blackmon said, “…as we approach February, please remember Black people are not defined by the worst things white people have done to them. That’s not our history. It is theirs.”
We will have a discussion about this documentary at the board’s Social Justice Sunday Forum on Sunday, February 28, 11:30 a.m. We invite all members of our church and our community to join the discussion of this very important documentary.
How will this work you ask? You can see Tell Them We Are Rising on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/Cgmri7VBzpA.
On Sunday February 28, we will come together for a Zoom discussion of the film.
Please invite others to watch the documentary and join us for our discussion. The Zoom meeting is already set up; please see the information below, and we will send out another reminder as we get closer to the date.
