African American Cultural Events Committee

African American Cultural Events Committee



The Burlington County College African American Cultural Events Committee develops and coordinates a comprehensive program of educational, cultural, and social activities that provide the college community with an opportunity to share in the contributions made by individuals of African descent. The events are designed to increase knowledge, enhance leadership, and strengthen the will to achieve. The Committee recognizes that African American history is an excellent learning opportunity for the entire College community and our objectives to achieve our mission include:
  • Enlist the participation of students, college employees, and community members in planning, supporting and attending African American cultural events.
  • Plan and sponsor events throughout the year which showcases the complexity of the African American history and culture to a diverse population. 
  • Broaden the College community's awareness regarding the contributions of African Americans in shaping our society.
