Minneapolis' first Black Expo was troubled from the start, according to a city-funded report released Tuesday.

The event, held earlier this year, had no detailed plan or budget, directed more public money out-of-state than to the local Black community for which it was intended, and contained numerous "contracting anomalies" that have raised the eyebrows of forensic accountants.

The report, prepared for the City Auditor's Office by consultant Baker Tilly, marks the first step in a multistage effort planned by city officials to get to the bottom of what happened with the "I Am My Ancestors' Wildest Dream Expo" held in February at the Minneapolis Convention Center.
