Two truths about the Tuscaloosa community is that it's rich in heritage and the city is full of talented and innovative people.  Unfortunately, we don't always know who does what until we're setting to do something on our own. We mention it to our loved ones to get their support, and we're hit with, "You know 'so and so' does that, right?"

That's about to change!

Tuscaloosa's top two radio stations have a Black audience, and the city is the home of one the nation's Historically Black Colleges and Universities.  Why not combine forces to celebrate our heritage and learn more about what we have to offer each other?

On June 15th, WTUG and WTSK will partner with Stillman College to present the Inaugural Juneteenth Celebration and Black Business Expo!  This free community event will feature mini courses on financial literacy and money management, life insurance, the process of buying a home and much more!

If we don't take care of ourselves, who will?

But of course, this is NOT an "all business" affair!  With the celebration falling on Father's Day weekend, it's an all out family affair!  There will be arts and crafts for children, bouncy houses, story telling, and more!

We're making it a complete family affair by including a fathers' grilling competition!  This is the perfect time for men to brag on their capabilities and to prove that the char may or may not be the best part.  Prize money is at stake!

More events will be announced as details are confirmed.

We'd like as many Black owned businesses as possible to take part!  Vendor spaces are available and may be purchased by Daphne Hood at Stillman College at (205) 331-9705 or Townsquare Media at (205) 345-7200.
