Find Out Why More Than 100 Black Celebrities Met At Cedric The Entertainer’s House

July 15, 2016  |  

After the events of the past two weeks, in combination of what we’ve already seen, in terms of racial unjust and inequality, it’s high time someone spoke out or came up with a solution. And perhaps comedian Cedric The Entertainer had a solution-based mindset when he invited more than a 100 Black celebrities to participate in a discussion about race relations in the country and what they could do to find possible solutions.

Actors, musicians, policy makers, and many more were all in attendance.

That night, among the group of people at his house were Omar Epps, Larenz Tate, T.I., Boris Kodjoe, Nicole Ari Parker,  Tina Lawson. Compton Mayor, Aja Brown, Jesse Williams, Terrence J., Nate Parker, Tisha Campbell-Martin, Niecy Nash, Meagan Good, and Tasha Smith, among several others.

We’re not entirely sure what they discussed that evening, but according to a recent TMZ interview, rapper The Game said, “Once we got all of our opinions out and everybody spoke freely, and was allowed to do so, then we got back to the common goal which is saving each other’s lives.”

Some of the celebrities in attendance posted pictures from the evening.

With one I respect and appreciate my brother in the cause #TheGame @losangelesconfidential Last night many of us within the black Hollywood community came together to discuss what's going on in our country and what we can do with our voices and influence to make change. Discussions were had, feelings were expressed, most of all strategies were created. You will continue to see some of us out front others of us will work quietly yet powerfully in other forms behind the scenes but we. are. here. You have all always supported us in our art I want you to know that we feel the pain deeply and we support and are working to make change for our people and ALL people in LIFE. We love you. #creativecoalition #townHallMeeting #yourlifematterstous #blacklivesmatter #lifematters #onelove #wearethehumanrace
