For 25 years, the African American Cultural & Resource Center has played an integral role on campus supporting the black student community. This panel discussion features prominent individuals who helped bring The Center to fruition as well as those currently involved in continuing its legacy of excellence. Inspired by two historically significant oral history collections recently digitized for use by the University of Cincinnati community and housed in the College of Arts and Sciences as part of a partnership with the Cincinnati Museum Center (the Adeline Harris Collection and the Cincinnati Working Women’s Collection), this discussion will be a part of a full video production that will be filmed, produced and archived as a piece of UC’s rich history and for use as a tool for research and discovery.
