A Celebration of Film & Television Brought To You By Terk Stevens And Ricky Montgomery, Featuring Charles D. King
LOS ANGELES – Tarek “Terk” Stevens and Tricky Montgomery held their Annual “Influencers Brunch” on March 26 in Los Angeles at the SLS Hotel. The “Influencers Brunch” featured an in-depth conversation with Charles D. King, Founder & CEO of MACRO as well as a guest appearance by the COO of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Christine Simmons.
The conversation with Charles D. King was led by his passion for representing the voice and perspectives of Black people, indigenous people, and people of color. He talked about his journey from talent agent to entrepreneur, and about how the team he has around him makes it all possible to be leaders in this arena; to be selective in what and how they represent the community, social stigmas, our fears, and victories. It’s Charles King’s unrelenting pursuit of creating films with the right messaging that resonates with audiences and his effort in transforming Hollywood and in the way we watch movies.
Additionally, the “Influencers Brunch” featured a special moment with our hosts. Presented by Moet & Chandon, Chris Spencer honored Anthony Anderson for his achievements in the film and television space; celebrating him for his leadership in paving the way for young actors to not only be bold and brave, but to give back to our community, and to be a positive voice amongst social and societal detriments.
Hosted by Anthony Anderson and Chris Spencer, an elite list of actors, journalists, producers, corporate sponsors, and influencers graced the carpet including Hill Harper, Aida Rodriguez, Cori Hardrict, Michael Jai White, Angela Yee, Annie Ilonzeh, Jerrie Johnson, and Daymond John.
Sponsors for the Annual “Influencers Brunch” include, META, Shea Moisture, Moet & Chandon, and Morgan Stanley Global Sports & Entertainment.
