Host a House Party

Firelight Media welcomes you to join us in creating a national conversation surrounding historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) for one night during the television broadcast on February 19th, 2018. By hosting an #HBCURising House Party, you, along with our national partners, the filmmakers, celebrities and the nationwide HBCU community will be joining the celebratory conversation surrounding the impact of HBCUs on American history, culture, and national identity for more than 150 years, and the future for these important institutions.

With this call to action to unite on February 19th, around the first-ever documentary examining the history and legacy of black colleges, we will take over social media through a live Twitter chat to tell the world we are STILL RISING, using the hashtag #HBCURising. Share your story and rise with us!
