Historical Notes: The Association of Black Culture (ABCC) is a national organization to institutionalize the individual efforts of black culture centers and kindred structures on predominantly white college campuses. The ABCC mission also includes the promotion of history and culture of African people, African self-determination, and education of the total community regarding authentic integration. The ABCC was conceived in 1987 by Fred Lee Hord (B.S., M.S. Indiana State University; Ph.D. Union Graduate School) who has been with the Knox College Faculty since 1988.

Scope Notes: The collection contains letters of correspondence from Fred Hord, the history and development of ABCC, annual national conferences at universities across the United States, and various committee notes. Photos and black culture literature from other schools are also included, as well as lecture tapes from ABCC 1989 Conference.
