Today, Paul W. Bryant Drive runs directly behind the First African Baptist Church, linking the front gate of the city’s oldest surviving Civil War burial ground, Greenwood Cemetery, to Bryant-Denny Stadium, where the Crimson Tide play their home games. On a recent sunny morning, before a game against Mississippi State, I walked down that street to meet a group of student protesters, known by the hashtag #Bamasits, who had planned to gather at the student entrance before their latest demonstration.

UA alumna Teryn Shipman, who was integral in establishing the IDC, said that the University never established a budget specifically for the center. Instead, Shipman spent a great deal of her own time and money creating events for the center.
