About The Carver

Located just east of downtown San Antonio, the Carver Community Cultural Center (the Carver) is an historical center of the community’s African-American culture. Named in honor of internationally esteemed agricultural chemist George Washington Carver, the Carver embodies this great man’s philosophy and spirit:

“Start where you are, with what you have.

Make something of it. Never be satisfied.”

The mission of the Carver Community Cultural Center is to celebrate the diverse cultures of our world, nation and community, with emphasis on its African and African-American heritage, by providing challenging artistic presentations, community outreach activities and educational programs.

The Carver Development Board is a 501 (c) (3) organization whose mission is to undertake fund-raising activities and to provide financial, programming and advisory support to the Carver Community Cultural Center.

The Carver operates as a special project of the Conventions Sports and Entertainment Facilities Department.
