The Association for Black Culture Centers is an organization that seeks to celebrate, promote and critically examine the cultures (ways of life) of the following ethnic groups: African American, Latino, Asian American and Native American. We aim to institutionalize those Centers, including Multiculture Centers, to enhance individual, community and global development. The ABCC expects that increased understanding of history and culture of each ethnic group will lead to authentic integration on campus and in the community. Latinos, Asian Americans and Native Americans have an historical and contemporary connection with Africana people, and we begin these relationships by focusing on the connections.
