There is no doubt about it that Atlanta is one of the fastest growing cities when it comes to making movies. It is also one of the places where Black people are vastly employed. On October 8, Insecure stars, Issa Rae and Yvonne Orji celebrated both of those things with a penthouse kickback Blackly titled, #LemonPepperKickback that included many #LemonPepperShawties.
Everybody who was Black and working was in attendance and there is no doubt about it that it seems like the litest thing to happen in 2017, (besides the Black Panther trailer dropping). If not the litest, then certainly the Blackest. Issa even stated, "We throwing a lil ATL party for everybody Black and working in the ATL..."
Folks from Amandla Sternberg and Tessa Thompson, Lil Rel Howery, to Donald Glover and the entire Wondaland crew was in attendance. There was chicken wings and alcohol galore. It seemed like the most amazing thing to be a part of. Everybody was casually referring to each other as bro and sis, Samuel L. Jackson was eating the hell out of some chicken wings, and there was not a shortage of fine ass Black men. (*cough, cough* Luke James)
We just know that the n-word was said multiple times and nobody had to get up and fight the perpetrator. Honestly, the images seen from this party can truly inspire individuals to work harder at achieving their dreams. There is nothing like seeing working Black people celebrate their success. We cannot wait to continue support their projects. Check out Issa's and Yvonne's Instagram stories below as well as a few photos from the amazing night.
