CMC Board of Directors
The Carl Maxey Center is a Washington State non-profit, 501c3 organization, that was
originally formed in 2017 and is based in Spokane. The Carl Maxey Center is committed
to changing lives and improving the well-being of Spokane's African American community.
We believe it is important to know about the African American 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 Carl Maxey Center is a
non-profit organization that is committed to changing lives, improving the well-being and furthering the educational, economic and
cultural opportunities for African Americans
in Spokane and the greater community.
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; (c) Education & Advocacy;
and (d) Cultural Enrichment.
The goal of the Carl Maxey Center is to uplift, empower and transform Spokane’s African American community from the inside out.
