African American Cultural Center
Highlights Rich History
The African American Cultural Center has been a home away from home for NC State students for many years, although its history is not widely known on campus. A few AACC staff members are hoping to change that with an upcoming project providing an in-depth presentation and timeline of historical events surrounding the center. Headed by Michael Lewis, an AACC student leader, the project provides a unique perspective on the AACC’s history by drawing mostly on student media and digital archives.

The endeavor was inspired by the center’s upcoming 30th anniversary its Witherspoon Student Center location (previously known as the Student Center Annex). The center has been around much longer than thirty years — it actually originating in 1970. During its early years, the first Black Student Union gathered in the basement of the King Building (which was demolished in 1975). This gathering space was dubbed “The Ghetto,” and served as a valuable resource for Black students on campus, although it was described by white students as being dungeon-like.
