Document Description: The BCC Advisory Board and the Provost’s BCC Working Group employed Yongue Architects of Durham to make a recommendations for each of the proposed sites. In the early weeks of 1993, the advisory board and working group solidified programming decisions for a new Black Cultural Center, but clashed over the potential building site. Working Group members preferred the site near Coker Hall and the Bell Tower, in the Coker Woods, across South Road, away from the main quads of campus. The BCC Advisory Board favored the site between Wilson Library and Dey Hall, a space which would physically and symbolically include Black culture and experiences at UNC within the mainstream of campus’s landscape. This map shows the potential sites for a free-standing BCC. Site C is the Coker Woods site, and Site B is the Wilson-Dey site.
