Please join us at Central State University for an exciting afternoon on Saturday, December 2nd from 2:00-4:00 pm on the campus of Central State University. This premiere will be located in the Joshua I. Smith Center for Education & Natural Science building in the CENS auditorium room 114.
Brown Hands, Black Schools: HBCUs is an engaging, educational and fun animated short film with live-action scenes highlighting the rich history of Historically Black Colleges and Universities and the importance of literacy. The film takes us on an adventure with Aria and Walter as they visit their cousin’s HBCU for homecoming. We get to see them walk the yard, watch the football game, and enjoy the band. We learn that HBCUs produce 80 percent of the nation’s Black judges, as well as half of the country’s Black doctors and lawyers!
This film is based on the children’s book Brown Hands, Black Schools: HBCUs by CSU grad, Latoya Turner C/O ’09. Latoya is the executive producer, director, and writer of Brown Hands, Black Schools: HBCUs film. Angela K. Davis is the producer of this film. Angela is a 1995 CSU alumna and 2023 Alumni Achievement Hall of Fame Inductee.
