One of the biggest names in Georgia politics has announced that the next Democratic presidential debate will be held at one of the state’s newest Black-owned facilities.
In a Tweet from Friday night (October 25), Stacey Abrams revealed that Tyler Perry Studios will be the site of the event, which is slated for November 20.
“@TPStudios is a model for Georgia’s vibrant film industry, an engaged corporate citizen and an exceptional location for our #DemDebate,” she tweeted. “Looking forward to welcoming the candidates to Georgia on November 20.”
Tyler Perry opened his enormous, 330-acre facility during a star-studded event earlier this month. He is the first African American to own a major movie studio. See more at BET.
