Black Culture Centers are More than Bricks & Mortar
As a student activist, a longtime faculty member, and an administrator in higher education, I am particularly proud of two career accomplishments. One was fifty years ago at Earlham, a small Quaker liberal arts college, where I helped repurpose a college-owned house into a Black culture center. The second was twenty-five years ago at Indiana University, where I helped a large, public, research university construct a new Black culture center.
