We are so honored Will Smith, one of the greatest African American Actors of all time, Philadelphia native, icon, and rapper’s first stop on his Memoir tour is at the Met in Philly Monday November 8, 2021. Tickets to his event are available here.
The West Philly “born and raised” actor has made a stellar career choosing roles that amplify the nuanced stories, historical figures, and life of the Black world. From his blockbuster roles in Men In Black, Hitch, I Am Legend, & Bad Boys, to depicting historical figures such as Nelson Mandela and Mohammed Ali. This event is similar to the format of Oprah and friends tour where she invites notable peers to have an intimate conversation on life. To put icing on the cake, the “friend” he is choosing to launch the tour is fellow icon Queen Latifah and each ticket comes with a copy of his book through a partnership with Black-owned Philly bookstores Harriett’s and Uncle Bobbie’s.
Can’t wait to see y’all there supporting one of Philly’s favored sons for a night of positivity and community uplift!
