Carl Maxey Center
The Carl Maxey Center is an African American focused cultural Center located in the East Central neighborhood of Spokane, WA.
We believe it is important to know about the African American/Black experience. We, as a people, are resilient, long suffering, forgiving, uplifting, spiritual, passionate, joyful, innovative, and an integral part of a vibrant community.
Therefore the mission of the Carl Maxey Center is to change lives and improve the well-being of Spokane’s African American/Black community by expanding the educational, economic and cultural opportunities that are currently available, and by addressing the racial disparities and racial inequities that currently exist and have persisted in this area.
We do this by supporting and sustaining the work and programs of the Carl Maxey Center to address four focus areas: (a) Racial & Social justice and Equity; (b) Business/Workforce Development & Economics; (c) Education & Advocacy; and (d) Cultural Enrichment.
The long-term goals of the Carl Maxey Center are to uplift, empower and transform Spokane’s African American/Black community from the inside out, and to create the space, the opportunities and the infrastructure necessary for Black Spokane to identify and design solutions to address current and future challenges.
