Owensboro Black Expo

The 33rd Black Expo was held in Owensboro, KY, in July 2005 after a two year hiatus due to low participation. The outdoor festival included a parade, pageants, and basketball games. The event raises scholarship money and awareness in the African American community. For more see D.
