A “Tribute to Black Influence in Pop Culture!”

Los Angeles

For the second year in a row the Cooperative Economic Empowerment Movement (CEEM) will team with the LA County Fair to feature a “Tribute to Black Influence in Pop Culture!” during the weekend of September 13 through 15, 2019. The tribute will celebrate the incredible impact of African American contributions as they relate to this year’s fair theme—Pop Culture!  “Jean Luc Basquiat, Lebron James, Miles Davis, Grace Jones, Duke Ellington, Beyonce, Spike Lee, Diana Ross, Prince, there is no doubt that the African-American community has had profound impact on all aspects of pop culture from art to film to fashion to sports to music,” said CEEM’s CEO Kyle Webb.   “CEEM is proud to continue our partnership with the LA County Fair to offer the community a fun and interactive experience that will celebrate our rich pop culture heritage, offer a path forward by seeking creative ways to continue to disrupt the culture, shine a light on our experiences, and further CEEM’s mission to build wealth within our community,” he concluded. CEEM is a cooperative dedicated to increasing wealth, prosperity and educational outcomes for the African American community through mentorship, education and training. The CEEM Weekend is sponsored by McDonald’s Black & Positively Golden campaign, which celebrates a new movement to uplift communities and inspire excellence through education, empowerment and entrepreneurship.  Tickets to the event are available online at lacf.com/buy-tickets.
