Atlanta rapper/actor T.I. and his wife Tiny hosted a “Black Panther” screening over the weekend for hundreds of students from Tri-Cities, Benjamin E. Mays, Druid Hills high schools and Usher’s New Look Foundation.

The event was a joint project of his new nonprofit charitable organization, Harris Community Works, and the Los Angeles-based nonprofit, Go For Yours. The organizations previously hosted a screening on L.A. and will be in Chicago next. The artist also known as Clifford Harris previously teamed up with Walmart for an advance screening.

Students were selected for the screening on the strength of their academic and extracurricular achievements. “You’re the real heroes!” T.I. told them. Check out the video below.
