Equality is everyone's birth right and no one has the right to impinge on it! This is the main reason why the Carver library Auditorium was set up in 1938, in honor of George Washington Carver. Set up for the Afro-American community, this center focused on educational, cultural, political, social activities till the late 1950s. It was only in 1976 that it was re-christened the Carver Community Cultural Center. Afro-American artists like Ella Fitzgerald, Lionel Hampton, Paul Robeson, Louis Armstrong and Billy Eckstein have enraptured audiences with their soul touching music. Initially, the Afro-American community was not allowed to join the San Antonio's main cultural center. They were equal to the ‘white' Americans, yet they were separate. Today, the Carver center is multi-ethnic and multi-cultural where Visual and Performing Arts pre-dominate. But sometimes history is not easily forgotten and thus, this center pays most attention to its Afro-American community. If Jazz music sets the mood for you, then this is the place to be. Families can plan an evening out at this center because they have family and intimate series. Check the website for details.
