This fund supports the creation of a Black Public Arts space at the "Black Wednesday Wall." The goal of this Black Public Arts space is to celebrate the legacy, impact, and value that Black students and the Black Community have had throughout UC Berkeley’s history and the campus.
The “Black Wednesday Wall” has provided a community gathering space for generations of Black Students at Cal. Over three decades ago, Black students, now important alumni, started gathering daily at the wall outside of the Golden Bear Cafe to meet, greet, and support one another. This legacy continued for over 30 years and grew into a weekly community event that is now called Black Wednesday. Black Wednesday was created to provide an opportunity for Black undergraduate, graduates, staff, faculty, alumni, and community members to be in community together and to share resources.
Funds will be used to create a Black Public Arts space at the Black Wednesday Wall and its surrounding area, located between the Golden Bear Cafe and Sproul Plaza’s Walkway.
