One of the many ways the African American Cultural Center (AACC) connects with the larger campus community is through enriching projects centered around sharing Black stories, celebrating Black passions and looking at all the resources the center has to offer. This year, the AACC embodied this larger mission by creating the new AACC Podcast.
The AACC Podcast is a space where you can hear from the center’s staff and other campus community members on a variety of topics related to Black culture, studies, literature and more. Through our “Cultivating Your Passions” episodes, the center explores the diverse passions of Black professionals and highlights what influences their passions and how they cultivate them.

Other podcast episodes focus on discussing different dynamics centered around the Black experience. Specifically, a recent episode featuring Trumane Lee, assistant director of wellness with Wellness and Recreation, touches on the subject of Black wellness, specifically, ways to define wellness as Black folx, the barriers to wellness for Black folx and practices that make wellness attainable and sustainable.
The creation of the AACC Podcast has been an exciting endeavor. It is a way for the African American Cultural Center to continue sharing, acknowledging and celebrating Black stories, experiences and resources with the larger campus community. Although the podcast is in its initial stages, the African American Cultural Center staff hopes that the podcast continues to grow and flourish by centering both Black student and staff experiences here at NC State.
