Join us for a film screening at the Wilson Library of the PBS documentary Tell Them We Are Rising.
This story gives us insight into the world of HBCUs or Historically Black Colleges and Universities. We'll be accompanied by New Haven Adler Jeanette Morrison and members of the Black and Hispanic Caucus.
There will be an optional conversation following the film to reflect and share thoughts on the film and/or the subject area.

The Courtland S. Wilson Library opened in 2006. With the largest footprint among the NHFPL branches, Wilson is a beacon of opportunity and life-long learning in the Hill neighboorhood. Wilson supports literacy with monthly bulk book delivery to school teachers. A youth Lego club, and a newly formed tween and teen computer group meet weekly; and launching in 2019, a youth Girls Who Code Club. Many community groups convene in Wilson’s seven meeting rooms. The Computer Lab hosts groups and offers computer instruction including digital literacy classes in Spanish and weekly free tax preparation during tax season.
