Tyler Perry Makes History With His New Studio

Terry Perry has made history!

This past weekend everyone flocked to Atlanta to celebrate the grand opening of Tyler Perry Studios, the first ever fully black-owned film studio lot.

The lot spread over 330 acres once served as a Confederate army base. The studios feature a dozen sound stages named after black Hollywood icons, and a replica of The White House.

Tons of stars came out to The A to congratulate Perry. Oprah Winfrey, Spike Lee, Cicely Tyson, Samuel L. Jackson, Halle Berry, Jay-Z and Beyonce among the A-list celebrities in attendance.

As many people who have been following Perry’s career know, his literal rags-to-riches story is quite the impressive feat.
