The Texas Black Expo is honored to announce Earvin “Magic” Johnson as the featured guest of its Corporate Awards Luncheon, taking place during the annual Summer Celebration, May 18 - 21, 2023, with the theme of BOOM: Building Our Own Marketplace. The Corporate Luncheon will be Friday, May 19, at the Marriott Marquis Hotel, located at 1777 Walker St., at 12 noon.

The Texas Black Expo Summer Celebration is a series of events over the course of four days, mostly held at or near the George R. Brown Convention Center in downtown Houston. This year marks the organization’s 20th anniversary of serving the Black business community in Houston and throughout the state of Texas.

Magic Johnson is hailed as one of the best point guards in the history of the game of basketball and is known for his five NBA championship wins. He has been inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame twice, and he is widely considered one of the greatest players in NBA history. After retiring from basketball, Magic turned his focus to business, becoming one of the most successful and respected entrepreneurs in the world.

“We are so excited to bring Magic Johnson to Houston for the Texas Black Expo. Not only has he achieved great success on and off the court, but he consistently gives back to the community and continues to inspire millions of people around the world,” said Texas Black Expo founder Jerome Love. “We know people will leave the luncheon greater insight and motivation to achieve their own goals after hearing Magic speak.”

The Texas Black Expo draws thousands of attendees to Houston each year to experience an abundance of activities, workshops, shopping, giveaways and entertainment. The Summer Celebration has something for the entire family including the Kids Adventure Zone with a bouncy house, face painting, games and more, the ever-popular Diva Dialogue panel discussion, and a line-dancing competition for seniors. In addition, the Expo will also include a health and wellness pavilion, a beauty extravaganza, empowerment workshops, a kids and teen talent competition, live entertainment and author showcase. TBE will also honor community leaders at its annual Corporate Awards Luncheon.

“It has been our immense honor and pleasure to have served the people of Texas for 20 years through the Texas Black Expo,” said Love. “This event has become a staple in the local and regional business communities, with our vendors coming back year after year. Now that we’re able to gather again in-person since the pandemic, we’re looking forward to continuing to support small business owners, youth and the community at large.”

The Texas Black Expo was founded on the mission of bettering the community and offering an opportunity for African Americans to find success as business leaders. Through its year-round programming, TBE has committed to building resilient businesses in the community, and helping small companies and organizations attain fundamental entrepreneurial structure needed to gain market shares against their competitors. Texas Black Expo helps to build strong families, positively impact businesses and increase the value of economic growth in Texas.
