Association for Black Cultural Centers

Some confusion exists as to whether Dr. Hord is currently at Knox. While he is listed as a faculty member on the Knox website, he is also affiliated with NC State in some capacity (according to the ABCC). Anyone who can provide further information as to Dr. Hord's whereabouts is urged to come forward.
Dr. Hord has returned to Knox!
