ABC 7 Eyewitness News is a sponsor, and we'll have a bunch of ABC 7 folks at the expo. So what exactly can you experience? For one, you can try out for Jeopardy!. Merry Green, president and CEO of MGPG Events and creator of the Black Women's Expo, and Jimmy McGuire, Jeopardy! Clue Crew Member, came into our studio to tell us about the expo.
The event offers workshops, vendors and entertainment for the entire family. This year, there is also an International Pavilion with vendors from Africa, Brazil and the Caribbean. Also, Jeopardy! is looking for adult contestants. If you don't want to try out for Jeopardy!, you can still stop by the booth to play Jeopardy! for fun.
