WELCOME TO THE AFRICAN AMERICAN CULTURAL CENTER

The African American Cultural Center is one of four campus community centers (along with the GLBT Center, Multicultural Student Affairs, and the Women’s Center) housed under the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity (OIED).

The African American Cultural Center promotes awareness of and appreciation for African American and other African descent experiences through activities and events that enhance academic excellence and strengthen cultural competence for the campus and surrounding communities.

FEATURED EVENT

Black History Month 2018

Black History Month 2018

Black History Month is a time when communities across the nation celebrate the of achievements by Black Americans and recognize the central role of African Americans in U.S. history. Black History Month started as “Negro History Week,” in 1926, conceived by Carter G. Woodson, an influential African American historian, educator and scholar. In 1976, it became a month-long national observance. February was selected as the official month to include the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln.

At NC State, we choose to spend Black History Month celebrating the achievements, culture and contribution of members of the Black and African Diaspora. This year, our theme is “Reclaiming Our Time: Solidifying Our Existence in the Wake of Resistance.” All featured programming will begin with the preface “Reclaiming Our…” followed by a word or phrase that directly connects to how we will take ownership of our experiences and counter-storytelling throughout the month.
