The annual Circle of Sisters Expo returns to the Jacob Javits Convention Center, New York City on Saturday, September 7, 2019. Doors open at 10:00 a.m. and the day concludes at 10:00 p.m. The signature event is a must-attend destination featuring celebrities, musical performances, engaging seminars, empowering panels, and a curated marketplace.

Produced by NYC’s leading radio stations WBLS and WLIB, Circle of Sisters is the premier expo in the Tri-State celebrating and uniting Black Women and their families. This year’s lineup includes Grammy award-winning singer Maxwell, who will hit the main stage for a one-on-one conversation, and R&B singer Brian McKnight, who will headline the performance stage. The day will also include a star-studded POWER panel featuring the hit series’ cast members Naturi Naughton and Larenz Tate to discuss the ground-breaking show and what’s next for them. Also on the main stage will be a special recognition honoring The Exonerated 5: Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana, and Korey Wise in their journey to vindication as portrayed in Ava DuVernay's Netflix series When They See Us, The Central Park 5.

Circle of Sisters also features the 2019 Gospel Explosion hosted by WBLS’ Neicy Tribbett, Liz Black and Donnie McClurkin with featured performances by today’s leading gospel artists Hezekiah Walker, Anthony Brown, Jonathan Nelson and Yolanda Adams and more.
