The Indiana University Black Philanthropy Circle (BPC) joins the nation in the mourning of two civil rights icons and friends in the fight for justice, Congressman John Robert Lewis and Reverend Cordy Tindell “C.T.” Vivian.
This Call to Action asks us to give of ourselves in any way comfortable. The BPC invites you to act on this call to ensure the final impressions from our cries are not that of destruction but giving. Let us do our part to close the racial gaps in philanthropy and help build a system in our country that protects life, liberty, and a presumption of innocence that will provide justice for us all.”

The day of Saturday, Nov. 10, was an eventful one for the African American Arts Institute (AAAI). An institute supported by the Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs, the African American Arts Institute spent the weekend welcoming members of the community to two key events: the dedication of the institute’s dance studio floor to Professor Emerita Iris Rosa and the 25th Annual Potpourri of the Arts.
As the next step in its ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion, Indiana University has launched the Indiana University Black Philanthropy Circle.
