About The BACC
The Black Arts & Cultural Centers is focused on developing potential and creativity in Blacks in the Kalamazoo area, advance the awareness of Black artistic ability, preserve Black cultural heritage and enhance the interactions among diverse groups in the community.
Memberships are an integral part of the overall support for the Black Arts & Cultural Center. Members stand in solidarity with BACC, are recognized throughout our programs and have access to opportunities at the BACC. There are many membership options to support The BACC.
For more than three decades, Black Arts & Cultural Center (BACC) has been a cultural catalyst in the city of Kalamazoo. From the Black Arts Festival to Face Off Theatre Company, film series’ and art exhibitions, BACC has committed to preserving history and presenting culture. Fulfilling this commitment requires that we meet a $256,100.73 fundraising goal.
