“Bolinga,” which means love in Lingala, an African language, has been a cultural powerhouse that has enriched the campus with celebrations, famous speakers and history lessons related to the African American experience.
Over the years, the Bolinga Center has organized celebrations paying tribute to civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. and has hosted talks from minority scholars and minority community leaders. It has also organized Kwanza celebrations and organized film series and arts and community festivals.
