Red Tails premiere was in full effect last night at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York City. The film tells the story of the Tuskegee Airmen starring Terrence Howard, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Method Man, Ne-Yo, Marcus T. Paulk, Tristan Wilds and others.
The film’s director George Lucas sparked a much needed conversation about the plight of black actors and filmmakers in Hollywood when he revealed how hard it was for his new movie to get made because it has an all-black cast.
Hopefully the conversation will gain enough momentum to effect change.
Check out the red carpet pictures below with the original Tuskegee Airmen, Tia Mowry, Tika Sumpter, Terrence Howard and many more.
Red Tails Open in theaters January 20th.
