Our goal is to give a spotlight on Black Business and the value we contribute in our collective communities throughout the Tri-State and beyond
We hope to continue to develop relationships in the community. We will continue to support local small business, products/services and learn from each other as a community. The Tri-State Black Business Expo is here to stay and one of many events we will either hosts or support! Thank you to all of those that attended! Until Next Year, Support Black, Indigenous, Lantinx and all People of Color in the Small Business community. We stimulate the local economy by keeping the money in our neighborhoods
