The Fishbowl

Proposal for the Black Cultural Center, 1986

Document Description: The final report from the Black cultural center planning committee, issued in February 1986, determined that a new Black cultural center would need at least 8,548 square feet, which would include a library, a meeting room to accommodate 144 persons, a lounge for socializing, an art gallery, a music room rehearsal hall for 175 persons, and offices for staff members. Before this final report was submitted, Donald Boulton, vice chancellor for student affairs, set aside an 800 square-foot space in the front of the Frank Porter Graham Student Union, and funds were raised and redirected to hire a permanent director of the University’s new Black Cultural Center.
