The Black Cultural Center recognizes the need for a cultural connection between black parents and children in the Greater Lafayette area, which has prompted the creation of the Black Parents & Children Network (BPCN). BPCN invites participation from all those interested in a Black family cultural context, including Black parents and children, any parent or child of African or Caribbean descent, and mixed race families.

Meetup Group

Join our meetup group to connect with other parents in the area and learn about educational developmental resources for your children!
