Indiana Black Expo Summer Celebration

July 10, 2012


Various locations

July 12-22

Where to start? On film, the IBE Film Festival, July 14, includes one of my favorite documentaries in recent years: “Thunder Soul.” (See brief review here.) For celeb spotting, it’s hard to improve upon the July 20 Pacers Sports & Entertainment Corporate Luncheon with Harry Belafonte and Pam Grier. For music, there’s Gladys Knight and ConFunkShun on stage July 20. For sports fans, there’s the “Saving Our Youth” Celebrity Basketball Game featuring Reggie Wayne, Antoine Bethea, Bonzi Wells, Dru Hill and more. And that’s without even mentioning all the regular IBE activities going on inside the Indiana Convention Center July 21-22. Full schedule here
