The Take A Stand Campus Tour is bringing Bilal’s Stand and its production team to your city or community for a screening of the film! Afterward, the Tour engages audiences in a dialogue about many pertinent topics ranging from social mobility to personal responsibility. The Tour moves the needs on social justice and personal responsibility by discussing how we individually or collectively Take A Stand.
The film’s writer and director, Sultan Sharrief, was recently named top 25 New Faces in Independent Film by Filmmaker magazine. Being just a few years out of college, Sultan remains thoroughly engaged with his young audiences about how he created a semi-autobiographical film about his life.
After film viewings, Sultan conducts a follow up discussion with the student, staff and/or faculty audience regarding his path as well as different parts of the messages in the movie. This dialogue session has been recognized and supported by the National Center for Institutional Diversity among others. Discussion topics can include any of the listed ones below and more.

College campuses are being visited this Fall, so if you are an administrator or student group that would like to bring the film and Writer/Director Sultan Sharrief to your campus, now is that time!
Middle schools or high schools can join our Martin Luther King, Jr. “Virtual Stand” Release-In-Schools Tour in mid-January 2011. We will be screening the film Bilal’s Stand at multiple venues and each day will hold an online video dialogue and Q&A with Writer/Director Sultan Sharrief. The film and our dialogues cut across many themes that are relevant to Secondary courses as well as personal development, responsibility, and choice.
If you see a location near your campus where we are already touring, and would like to bring the movie and/or Take A Stand representatives to your area, let us know and we can plan around you! We also have screenings for cultural groups, museums, and other organizations year-round depending on availability. Contact us now at firstname.lastname@example.org!
