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 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:
- Carl Maxey Center’s Black History Month Event at the Spokane Central Library, Alethea Concert, Black Business Expo, and more.
- The Home: Imagining the Irrevocable exhibit at Gonzaga University that showcases African American artists around Eastern Washington.
- The Ubuhle Women: Beadwork and the Art of Independence exhibit at the Museum of Arts and Culture (MAC)
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.
