OUR THEME This year, Black communities around the nation are commemorating the 400th anniversary since the first African slave stepped onto the shores of the United States. Independence Weekend is a nod to this history and a recognition that we will gain true independence by working together in community..

OUR HISTORY In 2013, Boston resident and business owner, Yvens Germain, saw a severe need to connect minority business owners with resources and one another. Along with his team, he founded and ran the Minority Business Expo in the Roxbury neighborhood of Boston until 2017. We are grateful to his contributions and vision.

ABOUT MBE The Black Economic Council of Massachusetts (BECMA) and its community partners are hosting the Mass. Black Expo, a one-of-a-kind annual event that will bring together Black business owners and entrepreneurs, Black thought leaders, and Black communities from across the Commonwealth. The goal of the two-day event is to highlight Black businesses from all industries in the Commonwealth, and to connect them with procurement opportunities in the private and public sectors. 1
