Black Cultural Events Expands to Chicago

Black Cultural Events Expands Online Cultural Events Calendar to Chicago, Illinois.

LOS ANGELESNovember 10, 2020 -BCE Media Inc., parent company of online events calendar BlackCulturalEvents.com and led by CEO Pamela Ashe-Thomas, announced the expansion of BlackCulturalEvents.com into Chicago, Illinois (https://www.blackculturalevents.com/city/chicago) to accommodate their growth, and leverage Chicago’s longstanding African American community.

“The decision to expand our presence into Chicago was a logical step in our business growth strategy,” said Pamela Ashe-Thomas, CEO, and co-founder of BCE Media Inc. “Promoting Black cultural events and Black businesses is the main reason our site exists and we want to cover as wide an area as possible. Chicago is widely known as the central hub for African Americans in the midwestern area of the country.  With notable celebrities like Oprah Winfrey as well as political figures like former President Barack Obama, it makes perfect sense to expand to Chicago. The south side of Chicago in particular has a rich history of Black cultural events that we want to recognize.”

BlackCulturalEvents.com is an online cultural events calendar and newsletter (Black Cultural Events Weekly) with listings of black businesses, restaurants, cultural institutions, art centers, and landmarks that offer a gateway to the rich cultural life of the Black community.

“Our expansion into Chicago marks another milestone moment in the growth of BlackCulturalEvents.com as we introduce our world-class product to new audiences,” said BCE Media Inc. co-founder David Ashe. “We also welcome the opportunity to forge new partnerships with local venues, event producers and the community at large. Fortunately, we have several ties to the community already in place. We encourage everyone to support African American events and businesses in the community. During this unprecedented time of reacting to the pandemic, we are able to offer online events targeted to the African American community as well as a national audience at a time when even though we can not be in the same space we need to come together as one.”

BlackCulturalEvents.com national expansion will be led by its executive team and expects to grow into several key African American markets in the future. According to co-founder Eric Thomas, “African American cultural events are a large and growing category in the United States, and increasingly worldwide. We have a tremendous opportunity to engage the black community in all of Illinois and in major black communities across the country.”
