Circle of Sisters Delivered a Day of Fun Laughter & Sisterhood

New York, NY - The Annual Circle of Sisters EXPO closed with a record-breaking number of attendees at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City, recently.

Circle of Sisters remains the largest EXPO in New York City that celebrates and unites women of color.

Highlights of the day included the legendary actress Cicely Tyson who was honored by the WBLS team with the Circle of Sisters Living Legend Award, prima ballerina Misty Copeland shared her experience with attendees and received a special award.

The day was jammed-packed with stars of stage and screen, performers, entertainers, chefs and so much more. From Vivica A. Fox to Basketball Wives’ Evelyn Lozada, Imposter’s Stephen Bishop and Power’s Rotimi; to Papoose and rap artist Remy Ma as well as gospel artist JJ Hairston and wife Trina -- all gave

the audience what they wanted. From relationship advice to delving into the State of Black America, CNN Political Commentator Bakari Sellers joined Pastor A.R. Bernard, Rev. Al Sharpton and WBLS’ Ann Tripp to set a framework for the community.

“We commit every year to making Circle of Sisters bigger than the year before. This year was no dierent,” says Charlie Morgan, Senior Vice President/Market Manager WBLS/WLIB. “This was our best year yet! The EXPO continues to grow beyond our imagination.
