Black History Month makers Highlights

In celebrating 30 years of the Sacramento Black Expo held during Black History Month, founder and CEO Rick Warren is working with elected officials, educational institutions, corporate America and local citizens to present the most spectacular exhibition ever created in honor of those incredible people who have made indelible contributions and achievements which make them Black History Makers. These remarkable people will have their contributions placed on the "Great Wall" where photographs, biographies, and historical recollections will tell the stories of people who have sacrificed, worked, toiled and fought against bigotry, and racism to bring forward equality into the lives of Black people. The Black Expo theme of Black History Maker's From Home is a homage to our history and future.

Featuring 350 beautifully landscaped acres, Cal Expo was initiated by Governor Pat Brown and opened by Governor Ronald Reagan in 1968. The current Cal Expo facilities were dedicated as a place to celebrate California’s achievements, agriculture, diversity of its people, traditions and trends that will shape the Golden State’s future.

What's Happening at The Black Expo

Below you find general information regarding the Expo and its programs, services and entertainment.

Meet the professionals in real estate who can help first time homebuyers, sellers and pre-qualified buyers handle their business. In this summit people will have an opportunity to take a tour bus of properties, get pre-qualified, find the best loan programs and veterans will have increased access to programs that affect their homeownership future. This is the perfect discussion of opportunity for anyone in the real estate industry.
Small business owners are evolving in the African American community on a rate as twice as fast as any other minority group. In fact it is estimated that 2 out of every 5 African Americans are business owners. This equates to an opportunity to close the gaps between those who are thriving in business and those looking to expand their vision. The Summit will have direct impact on all of these goals and foster new opportunities between the two entities.
One of the most important aspects of Black Expo is to assure that African American men, women and children are exposed to opportunities for better health. The Summit will provide professionals with an opportunity for outreach to teach, enroll, and acquaint enrollees with their institutions.Healthcare, health management, preventive care, and treatment are the pivotal issues exhibited and discussed at this Summit.
Jobs, jobs and more jobs are the mantra of Black Expo. People and companies expect to exchange ideas and opportunities at the event. Careers and jobs remain the quintessential element of opportunity of Black Expo. This Summit will have exhibitors with information on current hiring’s, future listings and training on how to apply. It is imperative that information be distributed equally and fairly when it comes to employment so that communities of color who have capable qualified candidates are considered. Black Expo is the place where preparation does meet opportunity and the results are justified.
The secret to gaining access to all of the above is really not a secret. Schools, colleges, vocational chools and training programs are all a part of the mission of Black Expo to develop the minds of people. We encourage universities, unions, and institutions of elementary learning to higher learning to meet hundreds of potential students at Black Expo who are partaking in this Summit. A mind, and an opportunity help shape a mind are both terrible things to waste.
