. . . Community Treasure, Health Care Advocate and President of the Los Angeles Black Business Expo
As president of BBX, Hambrick took pride in showing off the history, services and accomplishments of the Black community, which he referred to as "the family." He promoted the show as a way to introduce "relatives" to each other and to those outside the family. The first Black consumer show to run in the Tom Bradley Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center, the annual effort was massive. In its heyday in the late 1990s and early 2000s, the show included up to 400 vendors and nearly 300 workers on event day, providing an array of services.
"We allow folk to use their God-given talents to help us pull off one of the largest events held in celebration of the Black family," he said.
