  • The grand opening of Tyler Perry Studios on October 5, 2019 will remain a memorable day as it marked the celebration of the first ever fully black-owned film studio.  

 

What makes it unique is that it has no proprietary partners or corporate backing, it’s all owned by the filmmaker and actor known by his popular character of Madea.
