该中心的历史

The Pan African Center for Community Studies was originally established in 1973 as The Black Culture Center, and was created to answer Black United Students’ demands for the University to recognize the African American community, articulate the need for a Black Studies Program, which is now called the Pan African Studies Program, and create a Black Cultural Center. In keeping with its changing mission, in 1998, the Black Cultural Center was renamed the Pan African Culture & 研究 Center. In 2002, the Center underwent another name change, and is called the Pan African Center for Community Studies. From its founding, the Center has provided opportunities for students and the community to experience the educational excellence, leadership, and legacy of African Americans offered by the University.
