Black Excellence Celebrate Tyler Perry Opening Major Film Studio in Atlanta

 

Tyler Perry celebrated the grand opening of Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta with a star-studded gala on Oct. 5, 2019. Scroll through to see some of Hollywood's biggest names turn out to support Perry. 

Black excellence was out in full force Saturday when Tyler Perry invited hundreds of A-list celebrities to celebrate the grand opening of his studios in Atlanta. The director, screenwriter, actor, producer and playwright made history as the only Black man to own a major movie studio in the U.S.

Perry invited many of his frequent collaborators to his opening, which took place on the 330-acre lot, including Oprah Winfrey, Cecily Tyson, Taraji P. Henson, Jill Scott, Whoopi Goldberg, and Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Other Hollywood heavyweights came, including Spike Lee, Christian Keyes, Ava DuVernay, Beyoncé, Jay Z and Halle Berry, along with politicos such as John Lewis, Bernice King and Stacey Abrams.

According to his website, Perry purchased the land in June 2015, which now holds 12 sound stages for movie productions. He dedicated each soundstage to a Black person who’s made strides in Hollywood, including the late Diahann Carroll.
