Columbia, SC (WLTX) - It was another successful year for the annual Columbia Black Expo.

The weekend was full of events, starting with a Taste of Black Columbia Friday, and continued with the main event at the Colonial Life Arena Saturday.

Thousands of people attended the events and it gave businesses a chance to get their name out to the public.    Janson Bell is hoping to get "TJ Dreamers" up and running.

"We are actually uplifting kids in youth and trying to inspire them so we are out here just trying to make connections," Bell said. "I think it is good for the community because there is not a lot of black events that go on so I think it is really good for the people of South Carolina to get to enjoy something like this."

News19 is a proud sponsor of the Black Expo.
