Copies of unrestricted digital files will be provided for use in the SCRC Reading Room upon request. Access will be provided to use copies of unrestricted digital files rather than carrier media, such as CDs, DVDs, and floppy disks.

This collection is comprised of correspondence, surveys, and reports related to discrimination and African American issues. It also includes information on the African American Cultural Center. This office of African American Affairs worked in cooperation with the Affirmative Action Office.

In 1990 North Carolina State University created a position of Coordinator of African American Affairs within the Office of the Provost. Dr. Augustus M. Witherspoon became the first to fill the position. Drs. William C. Grant, Rupert W. Nacoste, and Jose A. Picart have followed in his footsteps. By 2000 the position had become the Vice Provost for Diversity and African American Affairs.

Biographical/historical note

In 1990 North Carolina State University created the position of Coordinator of African American Affairs within the Office of the Provost. Dr. Augustus M. "Gus" Witherspoon became the first to fill the position. His responsibilities included helping in the interview process of all associate professors, reviewing and making recommendations for faculty promotion and tenure, coordinating college dean reviews, and serving as liaison between faculty bodies and administration on academic matters. The Coordinator of African American Affairs was also responsible for the University Recruitment and Retention Programs and the programmatic activities of the African American Cultural Center, which was established in 1991 through Dr. Witherspoon's efforts. The position also had a liaison role with African-American faculty and staff organizations and African American student organizations.

Following Dr. Witherspoon's untimely death in 1994, Drs. William C. Grant, Rupert W. Nacoste, and Jose A. Picart have followed in his footsteps. By 2000 the position had become the Vice Provost for Diversity and African American Affairs.

By 2007, the Vice Provost for Diversity and African American Affairs had the primary responsibility of forging a shared vision concerning the recruitment, retention, and graduation of a diverse student body. The position was a focal point in the Office of the Provost for advocating, assisting, encouraging, evaluating, and monitoring African American undergraduate and graduate student success. The Vice Provost facilitated communication about diversity as being at the core of the University's academic mission. In July of 2011, the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity was formed as part of the University's strategic realignment. The African American Cultural Center became a part of this unit.

Additional information on the early history of African American affairs at North Carolina State University can be found in the book, "The Provost's Office, North Carolina State University: an Informal History, 1955-1993".

Scope/content

This collection is comprised of correspondence, surveys, and reports related to discrimination and African American issues. It also includes information on the African American Cultural Center. This office of African American Affairs worked in cooperation with the Affirmative Action Office. The materials date from 1956 to 2011, but the bulk of the materials are from 1980 to 1997.

This collection contains information on the creation of the African American Cultural Center, including the architectural plans for Witherspoon Hall, where the Center is currently located. Dr. M. Iyailu Moses was appointed the first Director of the African American Cultural Center in 1992. Also included in this collection are two plays from the Black Repertory Theatre as well as general information on the group. The Black Repertory Theatre was created to increase African American students' involvement in theater at North Carolina State University. This collection also contains a program from the 1990 Brotherhood Banquet which honored Dr. Christine Darden, one of the researchers featured in the book, "Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Who Helped Win the Space Race".
