Founded in 1991 as The Arts League of Michigan, Inc., The Carr Center has become one of the leading organizations to present African American arts, in all disciplines, in the country. The center is named for the late Virgil Carr, an arts advocate and community leader, who was the former President and CEO of The United Way of Detroit.

The Carr Center leverages the essence of the African American cultural experience to inspire, entertain, challenge, and educate. Currently celebrating their 30th Anniversary, The Carr Center boasts an exceptional history of providing world-class arts programming to the community and supporting artists in the creation and presentation of their work. Their mission is to preserve, present, promote, and develop the African and African-American cultural arts traditions within our multicultural community.
