Black Culture Centers Embracing Multiculturalism and Intellectual Conversation

August 28, 2014

Dr. Fred L. Hord felt isolated and frustrated in his first year as director of a Black culture center at West Virginia University because of the lack of networking among his peers in the state and region.

So at a meeting of the American Council on Education, Hord proposed creating a national network of Black culture centers, an idea that fellow directors embraced enthusiastically. Thus was born the Association for Black Culture Centers in 1987.
