Institute of Black Culture Anniversary and Grand Opening of the Black Enrichment Center

Filed under Cultural, Events on February 2, 2016.

Institute of Black Culture (IBC) was officially dedicated on February 11, 1972 and for more than 40 years the IBC has been a home away from home for numerous students moving through the University of Florida. The IBC continues to function as a resource for all members of the university community by providing educational, social, and cultural programming, cultivating student leadership, and building on its founding legacy of social justice.

44 years later, Black Affairs is excited to announce that they are expanding and opening the doors to the Black Enrichment Center at the Reitz Union. This is another historical mile marker for the community and our university. Join Black Affairs on Feb. 11 to commemorate the Anniversary of the IBC and their Grand Opening Ceremony for the Black Enrichment Center. Festivities begin at 11 a.m. at the IBC, and they will have a parade through campus from the IBC to the Reitz Union. Show your pride for your heritage and represent your culture through traditional dress or bring flags so the university understands Black culture is multi-faceted.  Learn more at
