Spots are filling up! RSVP for NJPAC’s HBCU celebration on June 17

Honor Juneteenth with a PSEG True Diversity Film screening and Standing in Solidarityconversation on the history and impact of historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs).

These schools, some predating the Civil War, are credited with building the African American middle class and creating pathways for economic and social mobility. The program includes a PSEG True Diversity Film screening of Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Black Colleges and Universities (Firelight Films, 2018). The documentary examines the impact of HBCUs on American history, culture and national identity.

A conversation with Black leaders, who are also HBCU graduates, will take place following the film screening. Our panel will be moderated by Calvin Ledford (Hampton University), President, PSEG Foundation, and Director, Corporate Social Responsibility.
