In response to the post by "AtlantaAdvocate": I think that you misunderstood what Mr. Williams was saying. I took his meaning as OTHER creative projects and production companies could have a fair shot now that Tyler Perry Studios has "paved the way." We all have differing opinions on Mr. Perry's work, but that's not the point here. The point is that now there's more attention on Atlanta as a viable production town. Encouraging and developing that is, in my humble opinion, is what Mr. Williams was trying to articulate. By the way, the "Black Wall Street" that he spoke of resurrecting was never in Atlanta, but in Tulsa, Oklahoma in the 1910's. There was a neighborhood that was home to several prominent Black businesses that thrived up until the Tulsa Race Riot... FYI.
