About Us

The Ohio Black Expo focuses on celebrating the past, present, and future of Ohio’s people, places, businesses, and organizations.

We are a non-profit organization that is most known for our annual expo events that took place during the 1980’s and 1990’s. The return of this Downtown Columbus event is bringing visitors from around the state and surrounding states.

PURPOSE: Ohio Black Expo is a statewide humanitarian organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for Ohio’s African American citizens, by establishing and encouraging an independent self-help approach to problem solving.

Our initiatives address several areas that are key to the success and well-being of African Americans in Ohio.
