There was so much melanin goodness in Atlanta last night, Issa Rae and Yvonne Orji decided to throw a kickback and that ish was LIT AF. Peep the party pics and videos, especially the clip of Samuel L. Jackson cleaning his chicken wings inside…
Y’all are about to be BIG Mad. Why?
Well, Issa Rae and Yvonne Orji put together this kickback and it was LIT AF. Like, all of your favorite young, black and fabulous entertainers were in the mix. And we’re SUPER mad we didn’t get an invite to the blackest party of 2017.
Yes, ALL of our faves came out to turn up. Even the legendary Samuel L. Jackson.
It was a “Insecure” meets “Atlanta” type situation with Janelle Monae and her WONDALAND crew.
Issa Rae, Yvonne Orji, Donald Glover, Brian Tyree Henry, Lil Rel, Janelle Monae, Jidenna, Amandla Stenberg, Luke James, Tessa Thompson,Mack Wilds and more enjoyed a fun night together for a kickback in Atlanta where they ate lemon pepper wings, pizza and sipped on some bubbly. Oh, and there were several dance offs that went down as well.
They dubbed it, #LemonPepperKickback. Ha!
Speaking of Tessa Thompson...
When news recently hit that the YBF actress would be playing Valkyrie in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War, she faced some serious racist backlash. And she properly put them in their place.
Oh, and the party was super TURNT. Check it:
Uncle Sam had to school the kids on how to properly clean your chicken bone because some of us are just plain disrespectful and don't get all of the "nutrients." Ha! Peep the clip above.
And check out how the whole night went down via their IG stories below:
Now we want an "Insecure"/"Atlanta" crossover episode!
Also in Atlanta...
Yas, to ALL this melanin! Samuel L. Jackson linked up with a fire group of YBF actors, including Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle, Laurence Fishburne, and Chadwick Boseman. Is this a Marvel situation? Yep!
According to ComicBook.com:
Samuel L. Jackson has joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe reunion photo shoot taking place in today.
Jackson, who plays Nick Fury in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, shared two photos from the event. [In one photo it shows] Jackson with Anthony Mackie, who plays the Falcon, and Laurence Fishburne, who will debut as Bill Foster, known as the hero Goliath in the Marvel Universe, in Ant-Man and the Wasp.
The [other] photo once again includes Jackson, Mackie, and Fishburne, only this time they’re joined by Don Cheadle, who plays War Machine, and Chadwick Boseman, Marvel’s Black Panther.
LOVING all of this!
