Purdue University Black Cultural Center (West Lafayette, Indiana)

The Purdue University Black Cultural Center was established on the campus of Purdue University (West Lafayette, Indiana) in 1969. Arthur J. Bond, one of the founders of the National Society of Black Engineers, helped found the center. The Purdue Black Cultural Center was created to serve the university’s African and African American students. The Indiana Black Librarians Network, an affiliate chapter of the Black Caucus of the American Library Association (BCALA), was organized on October 31, 2001 at the center.
