The Bruce D. Nesbitt African American Cultural Center, also known as B.N.A.A.C.C. and the Black House, is operating without a director. The old director Rory James left last August after an appealing offer from Indiana University. Two of the center’s professionals are talking about the past with Bruce Nesbitt as the director vs. now with the vacancy. Viewers and listeners will hear about how the center used to be with Bruce Nesbitt as the director. His daughter Val Nesbitt spoke to the issue.
My B-roll consists of different shots of the center’s program Food for the Soul that happens every Wednesday at noon at 51 E. Gregory Dr.
B.N.A.A.C.C. operates as a safe space for all groups of people but primarily African Americans in the C-U and U of I communities. Students, staff, and faculty use that space to make partnerships, find advocates, and gain life-long friendships.
