“Our vision was to create a forum in Chicago for women to discuss and explore solutions to the issues they confront in their daily lives and to celebrate their aspirations and achievements in an event designed for women by women. The Black Women’s Expo, now in its 20th year and the nation’s longest running exposition of its kind, garners the attendance of thousands at this annual ticketed event, more than 25,000 in 2013, and it has become an essential marketing tool for corporations seeking to engage this lucrative, upscale African American consumer in the country’s third largest market, Chicago.”
The BWe was created for women by women and to some women its life changing event. This year we’ll hear from people like ‘Thelma’ from Good Times, Bill Duke, Keshia Knight-Pulliam, Avery Sunshine and many other popular faces. The event begins on Friday and end on Sunday. As of now, you can get a three day pass for as cheap $45. Visit their website for more information and a full list of who will be in attendance.
