Founded in 1989 as a way of introducing Black businesses to consumers, share information on entrepreneurism and business development and build long-term relationships, BBX has exposed thousands of small businesses and corporations to nearly a million attendees. Additionally, through the power of the internet, Hambrick founded Black Expos of America (BXA) as a way to raise the profile of Black businesses around the country and educate the public about the power of harnessing their dollars for community empowerment.

“In this era of price consciousness, BBX felt it necessary to hold down costs, therefore, our ticket prices have not increased,” said Hambrick. “Tickets are still only $5 for persons 12 and older. Kids under 12 are free.”

The exhibit area will be open Friday and Sunday, noon to 6, and Saturday, noon to 8 p.m. For vendor booth registration, call (323) 290-4743 or visit http://www.blackbusinessexpo.com.

BBX To Highlight Gospel Music On Sunday

The Black Business Expo’s 20th Reunion will pay tribute to three gospel legends, Frank Williams, founder and director of the Mississippi Mass Choir, vocalist and keyboard artist extraordinaire, Billy Preston and the Rev. James Cleveland, whose singing, composing, and arranging talents revolutionized the way in which gospel music was performed, recorded and accepted into the mainstream.

The tribute, featuring videos of the men in performance, will be shown on Sunday, May 3, noon to 3 p.m. in the Tom Bradley Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center . The recordings will precede the BBX West Coast GospeLive Concert, to be emceed by Niele Anderson, host of “Inspire Me Sundays” on The BEAT, 93.5 FM.

Williams began singing gospel music in churches as a child, spending his evenings immersed in its sounds, under the guiding hand of his father, Leon. He had a vision that the soulful voices of Mississippi needed to be captured in choir, and founded Mississippi Mass in 1989. He was also a member of the Jackson Southenaires and an executive in the gospel music section of Maleco records.

Preston , the musical genius, followed in the footsteps of his mother and sister, Rodena in his love for playing the piano. He directed church choirs and accompanied musical giants, including Mahalia Jackson while still a child. Throughout his career, he was known for playing strong rhythms and mastery of the keyboards. In addition to R & B, he recorded several gospel projects and played keyboards on the albums of several others, including the Rev. James Cleveland.

Considered, “The King of Gospel,” Cleveland left a catalog of compositions and arrangements which have become standards in many churches. In 1962, he recorded the first ever live gospel album. Entitled, “This Sunday In Person,” the project featured Preston on organ. Later that year, his “Peace Be Still,” album made history when it sold more than 800,000 copies without the benefit of traditional promotion. As a way to preserve gospel music, he co-founded of the Gospel Music Workshop of America (GWMA). With chapters around the world, GWMA continues to host conventions in order to provide music education and develop talent and music ministries

During the concert, Edna Tatum, the announcer of “Gospel Classics” on KPFK radio, will receive the BBX Mahalia Jackson Gospel Legends Award. The award will be presented by Harold Hambrick, BBX President and John Phillips, last year’s awardee and 55 year gospel announcer. Phillips can currently be heard on KTYM, 1460 AM.

“Ms Tatum has done a tremendous service by keeping traditional gospel music alive in Los Angeles through her Sunday radio program on KPFK and her work with the L.A. Chapter of the GWMA,” said Hambrick.

During the Sunday afternoon event, students from the Amazing Grace Conservatory (ACG) co-founded by actress Wendy Raquel Robinson, will perform a scene from their upcoming production of the musical “Little Sarafina.”

Sponsored by OneUnited Bank, Farmers and the City of Los Angeles , BBX brings the best of Black L.A. to consumers and businesses. Other scheduled events include, the Tom Bradley Business Institute (and Mayors Forum); Glory Kitchen Tastin’ Black Culture Food Court ; West Coast Black Music Festival; Black Writers on Tour, the Fitness; Health and Sports Pavilion; AfroKids World; Black College Row; Tomorrow’s Entrepreneurs Teen Summit and Art Zone .

Exhibitor Profile: Chiropractor Who Has Your Back: Dr. Frank C. Derratt

Dr. Derratt, chiropractor, wants to work the kinks out of your back. Photo by Lauren BradleyEvery year, like clockwork, Dr. Frank C. Derratt is one of the first businesspersons to register for the Los Angeles Black Business Expo.

For the past 11 years, he and his trademark life-sized human spine have been a welcome staple to the Expo floor.

Why does he keep coming back?

“It gives me an opportunity to reach out to the community and share the benefits of natural health care through chiropractic,” said Dr. Derratt. He gives complimentary spinal screenings to Expo attendees who stop by his booth.

“Alignment of the spine results in the nervous system functioning at its optimal potential. My goal is to make people aware that the pain they have in their backs, necks and shoulders may be due to the fact that their posture is off. When there are vertebrae out of alignment, it causes tension on the nerves of the spine.

“No one will be refused if they have a sincere desire to receive chiropractic care,” said Dr. Derratt.
