Black history expo returns to St. Paul

January 13, 2014 by  

For the 2nd year, the Midwest Black History Expo is taking place over two days this February in St. Paul.

Black History Month is celebrated every February in the United States. The Midwest Black History Expo hopes to help spread cultural awareness and to share stories of survival and success. There will be seminars, exhibits, documentary showings, a fashion show, a college fair, an art competition and entertainment. The keynote address will be delivered by Robert Hill of UCLA. One exhibit of note will be African American Inventions and Inventors.

The event is hosted by Liberation Clothing & Gifts, and over 200 vendors are expected to be in attendance to sell arts and crafts and other related merchandise. Non-profit and community organizations will also be on hand to provide visitors with information about programs and services that are available to them.

Many people in the St. Paul area will no doubt want to attend this annual expo. To help advertise events such as this local print companies are often asked to provide brochures and flyers to help spread the word in the community.

The Midwest Black History Expo is taking place at the St. Paul RiverCentre from February 21 to 22 from 10:00 AM – 7:00 PM each day. Admission for both days is $10 in advance or $14 at the door; one day tickets are $5 in advance or $7 at the door.
