Yale Completes Renovations of Black Cultural Center

The Afro-American Cultural Center at Yale University reopened seven months after it was closed as part of a five-year, $3 million restoration program. The building received a complete makeover of its heating and electric systems. The basement was converted to usable space, its security was upgraded, new bathrooms were installed, and a performance area was created in the main room of the facility.

Jonathan Scott Holloway, professor of history and African-American studies, told the Yale Daily News, “The renovation shows that the institution and alumni recognize the house as a valuable resource on campus.”
