At the studio lot, Perry dedicated the sound stages to legends and icons such as Oprah Winfrey, Denzel Washington, Spike Lee and even his mother Willie Maxine Perry!


Tiffany Haddish, who looks up to Perry remembers filming at the studio and stated, “Every time that I came in to work here at Tyler Perry Studios, it was the biggest smile on my face. Cause I know the history of this place — It was a Confederate union military base, trying to keep us enslaved. Now it’s owned by a black man.”


Tyler expressed, "What I'm hoping it becomes is for everybody else who is ever dreaming and hoping -- they can do it too."



Congratulations to Tyler Perry in creating history and thank you for inspiring us all! Let us know what you think!
