The Sonja Haynes Stone Center for Black Culture and History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill was established on July 1, 1988. Initially known as the Black Cultural Center, it was renamed for beloved faculty member Dr. Sonja Haynes Stone after her untimely passing in 1991. Upon its inception, The Stone Center focused its attention on raising awareness of and appreciation for African-American culture by the campus community. Today, the Center is an important site for the critical examination of African-American, diaspora and African cultures, providing intellectual and cultural programming that is both timely and informative.

The building houses the staff of the Stone Center, seminar rooms, classrooms, a 10,000-volume lending library, a computer classroom, art gallery and museum, 360-seat auditorium, a multipurpose room, a dance studio, several office suites, single offices and space for visiting scholars/artists.  Designed by the award-winning architectural firm the Freelon Group and built by Clancy and Theys Construction firm.
