LSU African American Cultural Center Now Open

BATON ROUGE  – The original LSU African American Cultural Center was dedicated on Jan. 17, 1993, on Raphael Semmes Road in the same location as the new African American Cultural Center. The original center replaced the Harambeé House, the first meeting place specifically for African American Students that was founded in 1972 and located in the old Christian Science building.

 

The LSU African American Cultural Center held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m. on May 3, 2013 to officially open its new facility, located on campus at 3 Union Square in the same building as the Barnes & Noble at LSU, the new Women’s Center and the new parking garage.
