As an organization with multi-racial, majority white membership, we are spending this Black History Month amplifying and celebrating the voices of Black creators, educators, and Black-led organizations on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. Join us in a commitment to not only learn with intention, but to turn knowledge into anti-racist action, in and beyond this month.


We encourage you to support Black-owned restaurants like Chkn-N-Mo, Queen of Sheba, Fresh Soul, and The Soul Lounge. For a more comprehensive list, refer to this article from the Inlander.


We particularly call upon our white bodied folks to actively seek education on Spokane’s unique Black History. You can begin by visiting Spokane Community Against Racism’s (SCAR) website page on Spokane Black History.


A few opportunities to celebrate Black History Month in the Spokane community include:

Lastly, be sure to follow SCAR, Carl Maxey Center, Spokane NAACP, and the Martin Luther King Jr Family Outreach Center on social media to find additional resources and ways to support our Black community here in Spokane.
