The A.B.L.E. Center for Black Cultures' main goal is to promote cultural, economic, and social awareness of the Afro-centric, African, and African American community. The A.B.L.E. Center, under the direction of Intercultural Life, organizes cultural and diversity-related events, workshops, and meetings. The A.B.L.E.
