The ABLE Center for Black Culture is located at 168 West Tompkins Street. Its main goal is to promote cultural, economic, and social awareness of the Afro-centric, African, and African American community. The ABLE Center, under the direction of the Center for Intercultural Life, organizes cultural and diversity-related events, workshops, and meetings.

Knox College students living in the ABLE Center act as house monitors and assist the Center for Intercultural Life with organizing events throughout the year. The ABLE Center is open to the entire Knox community and is the primary space for Allied Blacks for Liberty and Equality (ABLE) events.

  • A conference room, used for Black Studies classes and meetings
