The Black Cultural Center first opened its doors in July of 1983. The Center was established and based on the premise that true integration and equality cannot be achieved without a general understanding of black culture.
The mission of the Black Cultural Center is to assist Berea College in maintaining an environment that acknowledges, respects, and enhances diversity and promotes interracial educational opportunities. We assist the college in its effort to recruit, retain, and graduate African American students; provide support services, programs, and activities for African American students to help them in achieve their highest educational potential. The BCC assists Berea College in recruiting and retaining African American faculty and staff; work closely with African American faculty and staff; and establish working relationships with African American communities throughout the Appalachian Region.
