The Center for Community Advancement (CCA) is a “Think Tank” whose mission it is to protect, preserve and advance our culture through social, political and economic empowerment, guided research and advocacy.
Our mission includes, but is not limited to: supporting private enterprise; contributing to vital cultural and political institutions and organizations; and dedication to the preservation and advancement of African Culture throughout the Diaspora.
Our intention is for the community to develop the capacity to locate and aggressively address the root cause of the social, political, and economic disparities through Research, Empowerment and Advocacy.
Education and work are the levers to uplift a people. Work alone will not do it unless inspired by the right ideals and guided by intelligence. Education must not simply teach work—it must teach Life. The Talented Tenth of the Negro race must be made leaders of thought and missionaries of culture among their people.
