Afroamerican Cultural Center
The Afro-American Cultural Center (AACC) of Charlotte is a distinguished, 33-year old institution that preserves, promotes, and presents African-American art, history and culture through comprehensive programs and presentations in the visual arts, performing arts, and through innovative educational programs. A new 44,000-square-foot headquarters on Stonewall Street between South Tryon and College Streets is being designed as a four story facility in the historic Brooklyn neighborhood – the center of Charlotte’s black
community dating from the late 1800’s until it was razed for urban renewal in the 1960s.
This facility will be a key component in Phase One of Charlotte’s Cultural Arts Facilities Master Plan. The Center includes a multi-purpose room/theater for lectures, small plays, spoken word, film, intimate musical events or corporate meetings, a roof top terrace for receptions, meetings and community gatherings, classrooms for educational programs, atrium/reception/event space for receptions and large gatherings, and a museum store.
