Cultural Community

The African American Research Library and Cultural Center (AARLCC) is a part of the Broward County Library. This state-of-the-art facility offers the community a space for research, life-long learning, cultural events, and more. It offers educational, recreational, and cultural programs on a regular basis, making it a vital part of the community.

The Research Library features notable statues and artwork chronicling the struggle that African-Americans have faced in the U.S. in its 5,000 square foot art gallery. You can check out the literary collections of African-American authors and books and artifacts from Africa, the Caribbean, and North/South America.

The AARLCC is a great place to learn more about the history of African-Americans in the U.S. and in the Fort Lauderdale area. Take the time to attend an exhibit or event at the Cultural Center and you won't be disappointed.
