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. Center is open to the entire Knox community and is the primary space for Allied Blacks for Liberty and Equality (A.B.L.E.) events.

The A.B.L.E. Center is a thriving hub for social gatherings, meetings, and study groups. It contains the following:

  • A conference room that can be used for meetings
  • A library of Afro-centric literature, used for leisure, class, or research purposes
  • A study/meeting area
  • A lounge/media room for meetings or social gatherings
  • A fully-furnished kitchen that may be used by any group or individuals who need a place to cook
  • An office for the A.B.L.E. Organization
  • A collection of artifacts from a multitude of points in the African world
