It was a weekend filled with style, beauty and inspiration at The Black Women’s Expo 2016 held at Chicago’s McCormick Place. This year’s theme, “She Matters,” is a celebration of the beauty, resilience and strength of Black Women. A great line-up of speakers, celebrity appearances and workshops with topics covering wellness, relationships and entrepreneurship awaited attendees at this empowering event. Sophisticate’s Black Hair attended the show and here we spotlight just some of the our favorite photos…
