Sacramento's 32nd annual Black Expo is back this weekend, and it has a new home at Sacramento State.

Organizers say the free Black History Month event will have entertainment, food and booths, as always. However, this year, founder Rick Warren told ABC10, there will be an extra focus on education about topics important to communities of color.

"You can get a job. You can find out how to get a home. You can even come to our Saving Our Children summit," Warren said. "One of the most important things we're talking about is the relationship between officers - law enforcement - and the African American community."

Rory Kaufman is president of the Black American Political Association of California and a co-organizer of the Black Expo.

"If you're a person of color, this is the place you need to be this weekend for a variety of reasons: entertainment, information, knowledge, education," he said. "And it's Black History Month."

The event will feature a free concert by artist Adrian Marcel. There will be a Black Girls Conference to empower young women of color, plus other seminars on getting out of college debt, building wealth, and the relationship between communities of color and law enforcement agencies. 

The event runs Saturday, Feb. 29, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, March 1, from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Sac State's University Union Ballroom.

Admission and parking are free.
