Over the weekend, Issa Rae and co-star Yvonne Orji threw what may be the most black and successful kickback we've ever seen. The impromptu kickback invited black creatives working in the Atlanta area to come out and enjoy fun, bubbly, and of course lemon pepper chicken wings.
Amongst those at the kickback were Lil Rel, Janelle Monae, acting legend Samuel L Jackson, Amandla Stenberg, Luke James, and fellow actor and creator Donald Glover.

Also at the kickback were Brian Tyree Henry, Tessa Thompson, Mack Wilds, and many more black creatives. To be surrounded by all that creativity and blackness has to be incredible. While we're sure all of our invites got lost in the mail, in a world of so much chaos, it's always beautiful to see black people flourishing. The #lemonpepperkickback is just what our spirit needed.
