Tyler Perry Opens New Studio in Atlanta.

Tyler Perry Studios has 12 sound stages named after iconic Black performers.

The 330-acre studio moved from its previous location to Fort McPherson, a former confederate Army base.

Think about the poetic justice in that.

The Confederate Army is fighting to keep Negroes enslaved in America, fighting, strategy, planning on this very ground.

And now this very ground is owned by me.

, Tyler Perry, via ‘CBS This Morning’.

Many stars attended the gala event celebrating the studio's opening including Oprah, Halle Berry, Ava DuVernay and Spike Lee.

Perry became the first African-American to open his own movie studio in 2006
