The Coker Woods Site was one of two possible sites for the construction of the free-standing Black Cultural Center (BCC), and is the current location of the Sonja Haynes Stone Center for Black Culture and History. In part because of tension over the Coker Woods site for the BCC, students organized a sit-in in the Chancellor’s office in April 1993, though eventually supporters acquiesced to the location of the BCC in Coker Woods.
