By Lynn Jones-Turpin – It was a new venue but it still promised the same deliverables.
Beginning with the well awaited “Taste of Jacksonville” and concluding with a two-day confab of entrepreneurial empowerment, the Black Expo returned to Jacksonville.
After almost a two year pandemic hiatus and just in time for Black History Month with a weekend of events. The three day event showcased Duval’s culinary chef’s cuisine, recognized the First Coast’s business leaders 20 under 40 and a concert with R&B singer Kenny Lattimore.
Culminating the weekend’s activities was the main vendor event inside TIAA Bank Field where hundreds of Duval residents perused vendors who were either Black entrepreneurs or value the African-American demographic market.
Under new leadership, healthcare executive and promoter Mincey Pollock is handling the Back Expo reigns. “This year we are back and vied for the community’s support. The entire weekend was a networking event for business leaders and community friends and family to unite,” said Pollock.
