Wilmington, NC - The Wilmington Black Expo returns to the Port City on Saturday, February 5, 2011, in the new Wilmington Convention Center. Expo hours are 11-6; admission is $5 per person. The largest event of its kind, the Expo promotes economic development through increased exposure for minority-owned businesses.

He was also the voice of Big Smoke on the video game, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

In association with the 40th anniversary commemoration of the Wilmington 10 incident, surviving members and others will be recognized during an invitation-only reception on Friday, February 4, at the Wilmington Convention Center.

McCants Communications Group, the North Carolina-based producer of the Wilmington Black Expo, has promoted minority businesses for over a decade through its Black Pages USA directories and its Black Expos in Wilmington, Columbia, SC, Charleston, SC, Jacksonville, FL, Norfolk, VA, and Virginia Beach, VA.
