Black Exposure Live, Birmingham

Black Exposure Live Day Expo FlyerMove aside Olympics! There are other important things happening this year.

“Like what” you dare ask?

Jamaica is celebrating it’s 50th year of independence! I didn’t know that before my correspondences with Emma Hamilton, the Black Exposure Live event organiser.

Black Exposure Live will be combining the two great celebrations in one [what I expect will be] amazing event.

So relax! Even if you’re not in London you should be able to celebrate in style.

The community organisation CUSH will be hosting an all day, two part event deemed by many to be Birmingham’s hottest multicultural celebration for 2012, Black Exposure Live.

It will be held at the New Bingley Hall on Saturday August 4th 2012, celebrating with Jamaican culture in a fun, friendly and family atmosphere.

What to Expect

The day will kick off at 10am with the Black Exposure Live Expo. Over 100 businesses will be exhibiting their range of products, selling a number of consumer goods including popular natural hair and beauty products, T-shirts with natural images and slogans, cosmetics, beautifully handcrafted jewellery and natural hair orientated seasonal greetings cards.

Misha B (from X Factor) will make a personal appearance during Black Exposure Live Expo to meet lucky visitors who arrive at 10am and then later perform her debut single, “Home Run”, at the Black Exposure Live Evening Concert from 7pm till late. The spectacular line up for the evening concert also includes Kenny Thomas, Alstallio, Christopher Ellis, the son of the legendary rock steady star Alton Ellis and home grown artists including Bingiman.

Creative dance crew PressuriZe will demonstrate the talents that young people possess today whilst a flamboyant fashion show featuring designs influenced by ethnic prints will show the creative flair present in Birmingham.

Intense barbering competitions will also take the stage and ensure there is a diverse mix of entertainment for everyone who attends.

Informative seminars will be held throughout this all day family event.

Olympic torch bearer, Leroy Henry, will deliver a seminar on the benefits of healthy eating and regular exercise and will also host a Q & A to answer all your fitness queries.

Natural hair care specialist Miss Brown, who specialises in sister locks, will deliver a natural hair care seminar with handy tips on how to combat all your hair care woes!

Other seminars not to be missed include a makeup master class by a top makeup artist!

Black Exposure Lives’ exclusive nail bar will enable you to sit back and get pampered by Birmingham’s top nail technicians.

Black Exposure Live will cater to all age ranges and the dedicated children’s zone will feature a number of activities including a bouncing castle, ice cream factory and face painting facilities that will be sure to keep your children entertained whilst you indulge on Birmingham’s finest jerk chicken that will be served exclusively in the Cuisine Corner. Other mouth-watering delicacies being served on the day include African, Moroccan and Caribbean cuisine.
