Due to Atlanta’s terrible history, film entrepreneur Tyler Perry utilized God’s Word to lay the foundation for his 330-acre Atlanta, Georgia, studio.

Tyler Perry Studios opened in 2019 after Perry bought the site for it in 2015. Since then, the studio has served as a launchpad for hundreds of television productions and films.

As part of a recent interview with the AARP, Perry disclosed that he buried Bibles beneath the sound stages on the property “as a means to refocus the spirit of the location.”

On a former Confederate army base, Tyler Perry Studios was created, and Perry is the first African American to own the land. For his project, he erected 12 sound stages, each of which was a tribute to a black actor or actress that inspired him.

“The land itself was once a Confederate Army base, which meant there were people here fighting to keep my ancestors enslaved,” he explained to AARP.

The professing Christian shared that he was haunted by the land as soon as he stepped on it.

“From the moment I walked onto the property, I was haunted by it. So, as we built each of the 12 soundstages, we buried Bibles underneath them, as a way of refocusing the spirit of the place,” he continued.

Perry has since used the studio to create content honoring black experiences.

His scripted crime-drama series, “The Haves and the Have Nots,” ran for eight seasons on Oprah Winfrey’s Own Network and was “the highest-rated show” on the channel.

“For Oprah and me, it was important to show black people that you can work together, that powers can come together and be successful,” Perry said.

He said that Tyler Perry Studios also provides jobs for many people, including those marginalized.

“Thousands of people come through the gate every day to work here. And it’s a beautiful thing. A lot of them are former prisoners who wouldn’t have had this shot,” he said.

Perry has been intentional about inviting God into his studio space since its launch.

For the grand opening of his studio in 2019, he held a gospel luncheon and a church service. A gospel choir and the Clark Sisters performed, while Bishop T.D. Jakes delivered a sermon in a replica church of the sanctuary from “The Color Purple.”

While Whoopi Goldberg, Halle Berry and Denzel Washington were unable to make it to the brunch due to scheduling conflicts, Samuel L. Jackson and Jay Z were there along with Beyonce and Patti Labelle as well.

Several people from the gospel music world were also in attendance, such as Bebe and Cece Winans, David and Tamela Mann, Pastor John Grey and Kirk Franklin.

video of Oprah showed the mogul in tears as a gospel choir sang while heading into the church.

At the time, Perry took to Instagram to give God praise for his success.

“Glory to Glory – Couldn’t close the weekend without Jesus meeting us on the lawn at the studio!! Having a full heart and a thankful soul to all that have prayed me all the way here,” Perry wrote.

Perry previously told The Christian Post how much of his work, including his film “A Fall from Grace,” reflects his faith and clinging to prayer in times of pain and uncertainty.

“I just want people to know that no matter how dark, no matter how bad, no matter how dismal the scene or situation you’re in, there’s still hope,” Perry said. “I say that even from my own life, realizing that I was in some of the darkest times in my life and didn’t even know if I was going to make it. But as long as it held my faith and held on to hope and prayer and God and believing, it all came together.”

  1. Fort McPherson was founded and built in 1882 as a “Union” post. Mr. Perry needs to learn his history. I’m pretty sure the civil war ended in 1865.
