Last week, music industry execs and MC’s came out to support Hip Hop legend Roxanne Shanté. I am OTHER and Netflix partnered for a private screening of the film Roxanne Roxanne in Atlanta, GA. Both the screening and after party were held at The Gathering Spot. Following the screening, a panel discussion and audience Q&A moderated by Chaka Zulu was held to discuss Roxanne’s life story and her contributions to the Hip Hop community. Roxanne Shanté was joined on stage by leading actress Chanté Adams, Producer MiMi Valdes, Award-Winning Executive Kawan “KP” Prather, and a few others who came up to the stage to pay homage.
After the panel discussion, the guests were invited to an exclusive after party held on the other side of The Gathering Spot. The crowd mixed and mingled while enjoying cocktails and classic Hip Hop including “Roxanne’s Revenge.”
