Black College Expo is in town

The Black College Expo has the following mission: "To expose young people, mainly targeting African American youth, to higher education and to encourage self-pride and self-development among our youth. To reach youth that never thought about college, never thought they could go to college, never were encouraged to go to college and/or not familiar with the college process. To expose and share all opportunities and resources that exists to strengthen oneself, which in turn strengthens our communities. To overall, become a resource base of information for parents and students to gain higher knowledge about the college admission process and the opportunities that exists.
