The Malcolm X Cultural Center was established in 1971 as the Malcolm X Room in a room below Berksire Dining Hall to provide space for social gathering, education through courses and speaker series, and political engagement for Black students through the Black Caucus. The Malcolm X Room served an important role in the social wellbeing of Black students at a time when Universities across the nation were opening their doors to students of color but were not equipped to support their transition to college.
Redacted from Early Beginnings of the Cultural Center by Ethan Bakuli, Cultural Center Fellow, spring 2018.
