Merry Green, Creator and Founder of the Black Women's Expo, vision continues to manifest in its 20 years the mission of equipping Black women with the tools and resources needed. Whether it was a seminar headed by Roland S. Martin, TV One's news correspondent, performance by award winning solo Gospel artist Erica Campbell, or presentation by an Expo exhibitor, there was a well-rounded supply of inspiration to motivate the Black woman consumer to become more health conscious, strut like a model in custom made garments, start the entrepreneurial journey or just to be uplifted with the other beautiful Black women attending the event.

Among the notable names to perform on the Expo's mainstage, Ashro Records' artist Shanon Harris brought her best praise to the audience. Announcing to some and confirming to others her presence in the Gospel music industry, she performed music from her debut album "Faith First" released in August of 2012. Bishop Larry D. Trotter & Sweet Holy Spirit stirred up the crowd with their foot-stomping hand-clapping music showing that Chicago is still the mecca of Gospel music. Their album "Praise Revisited" released in November 2013.

This year's Black Women's Expo brought together Black women from all over the Chicago area and even neighboring states to show that the Black woman consumers are instrumental to the survival and growth of their communities.
