The Africana Studies Center is located at 7 Haviland Street, in room 106, on the Boston campus. The center is a physical and soon-to-be digital space for students, staff, faculty, global artists, and researchers to enrich, support, and expand relationships to Black creative expression (with a particular emphasis on music, dance, and theater).

The Africana Studies Center nurtures and mentors leaders in creative performance, socially responsible research and scholarship, and innovative modes of expression and entrepreneurship. The center produces and supports student-inspired curated exhibits and faculty-led programming and events, in partnership with other academic departments, Student Enrollment and Engagement, and Berklee's libraries and archives.
