About the Coretta Scott King Center

Background

Coretta Scott King, who joined Antioch College as part of the class of 1951, granted the College the use of her name for a center that provides education, awareness and advocacy around issues of social justice and diversity. The Coretta Scott King Center (CSKC) for Cultural and Intellectual Freedom facilitates learning, dialogue, and action to advance racial and social justice. As one of seven Learning Hubs at Antioch College, the CSKC also hosts a variety of programs and educational initiatives for the campus community and the general public, connecting communities locally and nationally around issues of diversity, inclusion, and justice in all its forms. 

Mission

The mission of the center is to be a hub of learning about the life of Coretta Scott King and racial and social justice praxis, source of support for BIPOC and LGBTQ+ individuals on campus and in the community, and nexus of collective action for a more just and equitable present and future for all.
