Celebrating 25 Years
On Aug. 25, the Wilbur N. Daniel African American Cultural Center kicked-off a celebration of its 25th anniversary with trivia, refreshments and mementos for those in attendance. The Center, established in 1991, was formally named in 1992 in honor of the first African-American graduate from APSU. An intense desire of African-American students in the late 1980s and early 1990s to have a special place on campus to focus on their culture and contributions led to the establishment of the Center. The author Alex Haley, a Tennessee native who wrote “Roots,” was featured as part of the opening ceremonies in 1991.
