ODI hosts the 28th Annual Association of Black Cultural Centers National Conference

For a few short days in November, Hale Hall was the center of the Black Cultural Center universe as the Office of Diversity and Inclusion hosted the 28th Annual Association of Black Cultural Centers National Conference.

With Hale Black Cultural Center Director Larry Williamson leading the way, the conference featured a number of breakout sessions and special guest speakers discussing development issues, digital resources, strategic planning, and collaborative efforts as they relate to the nation's black cultural centers.

Welcoming the group to Buckeye Nation was Assistant Vice Provost Robert Solomon, who told conference members that the gathering was critically important for advancing cultural advocacy work.

“Who better to learn from and bounce ideas off of than your peers from around the country?,” Solomon said. “I feel that the work you do has never been more critical to the sense of building community among students of color.”
