On Sunday 31st March 2013, we attended the first Annual Black Baby Show.
The Black Baby Show is a children and baby expo devoted to parents, carers and those who are with child of African and Caribbean decent. Embracing all and excluding none, this Annual event will provide a diverse and unique cultural experience and an opportunity to engage with top quality specialists in multicultural fashion, health and wellness, parenting, maternity and childcare services, interactive adults and children’s workshops, seminars, arts & crafts, cultural toys, education and much more.
I had a brilliant time at the Black Baby Show and finally got to meet the amazing 10 years old young talent that is NATURE from Nafasi Cultured Cards by Nature and supermum Karlene who presented me with a wonderful Black History Studies customised card. I also got to meet the beautiful Onyinye Iwu of Oyinyedraws who is a freelance illustrator and an aspiring children’s book author. Her father was also present which was nice to see as my own father is a big supporter of my work at Black History Studies. Both Nature and Onyinye will be exhibiting at our Black Market event on Saturday 6th April 2013.
I was happy to see people from the Black History Studies network at this event as we must support our events and Black Businesses.
Well done to the organisers Shen Stephanie (who is 7.5 months pregnant and working hard), Heket Nedjety (or Charmaine Murray who is also pregnant) and Fée Uhssi who organised this wonderful event.
I am looking forward to the next event!
