Cooperative Economic Empowerment Movement (CEEM) set the bar at LA County Fair, bringing together the Black community for its 3rd Annual Black Excellence Weekend affair, which took place last month. The two-day extravaganza honored the City’s rich history of Black culture and heritage, bringing a sense of pride, unity, and cultural appreciation for all fairgoers to enjoy.
As a kick-off, CEEM teamed up with the National Black Grad yet again on a special evening event for hundreds of students across the Inland Empire. For two days, fairgoers indulged in delicious food served by Black-owned food truck vendors, such as Billionaire Burgers Boyz, All Flavor No Grease, and D Lo’s Kitchen. Popular LA brands like That’s A Awful Lot Of Cough Syrup were also on the grounds selling some of their exclusive streetwear clothing worn and seen by many top Hip Hop artists.
Headlined by Grammy-nominated artist MAJOR., some of the live performances included Snoop Dogg’s Snoop Youth Football League and Special Stars, Insecure actor and rapper Malcolm D. Kelly, Disney performer Mathew “Mdot” Finley, LGBTQ+ Hip Hop / R&B singer Nakkia Gold, and more!
CEEM’s Black Excellence Weekend has become a growing staple event at the fair each year, promoting prosperity, diversity, and equality for the Black community.
