MADISON (WKOW) – The Center for Black Excellence and Culture will soon break ground on their new facility.

A ceremony will be held on June 19 at the site of the center’s future home.

The groundbreaking will feature remarks from members of The Center’s leadership team and public officials who helped make the groundbreaking possible.

“The Center is the answer to the decades-long absence of cultural space to celebrate and advance Wisconsin’s Black community. To see the first steps taken in its construction is a testament to the boldness and perseverance of Black residents who have worked for years on end to make our dream a reality,” said Rev. Dr. Alex Gee.

The Center will celebrate and promote black excellence as well as pay tribute to Black history.

The Center for Black Excellence and Culture is launching a new fundraising initiative that will help the location break ground.

Community members are invited to the groundbreaking event and festivities, but those who plan to attend are encouraged to RSVP.

The ceremony will begin at 11 a.m. on June 19 at 655 W. Badger Road in Madison.

The Center is scheduled to open in late 2025.
