The Sonja Haynes Stone Center for Black Culture and History was established on July 1, 1988. Initially known as the Black Cultural Center, it was renamed for beloved faculty member Dr. Sonja Haynes Stone after her untimely passing in 1991.

Upon its inception, The Stone Center focused its attention on raising awareness of and appreciation for African American culture by the campus community. The Sonja Haynes Stone Center now incorporates the Institute of African American Research and our combined resources to provide opportunities for public engagement, research and programming in arts, culture and outreach. Our focus remains on the lives and histories of African Americans and Black communities throughout the diaspora, as well as support for students, faculty, staff and the community.
