On Tuesday (Sept. 28), REVOLT Media & TV Chairman Sean “Diddy” Combs announced the return of the annual REVOLT Summit x AT&T and its first stop this year will be Atlanta, Georgia.
Curated by Superfly, the three-day event is taking place on Nov. 11 – Nov. 13 at 787 Windsor, the 3.5-acre campus space that’s owned by God Is Dope founder and CEO Sharod Simpson. And like the past years’ Summits, this one aims to “inspire, educate and empower” the Black leaders of tomorrow as they chase their dreams to the top. Our featured panels, competitions, workshops, and performances; which will consist of some of the biggest names in entertainment, will be sure to do just that.
The 2020 REVOLT Summit x AT&T was forced to be virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic. .
“We’re excited to bring the REVOLT Summit back to Atlanta and celebrate the impact of Hip Hop globally,” said Combs. “My goal has always been to inspire the next generation of leaders and create a platform that provides them with real access and opportunity to learn from the best in the world.”
And they couldn’t come to Atlanta for the first 2021 REVOLT Summit x AT&T without some hometown heroes and heavy-hitters’ assistance. That’s why Migos rapper Offset, and rapper and activist Killer Mike are the three-day event’s culture curators.
“Atlanta is home to one of the largest creative communities in the world and has long been synonymous with Black excellence, so it only makes sense to have the Summit return here,” said Celeste Boyd-Spear, Vice President & General Manager – Southeast States, AT&T; and Atlanta native. “We’re thrilled to have the Summit return with incredible programming and opportunities that will help lead the next generation of Black entrepreneurs and change-makers alike.”
The Summit will even include recording artists G Herbo, Yung Bleu, Shenseea, as well as REVOLT franchise talent N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN of “Drink Champs,” Justin Laboy of “Respectfully Justin,” ATL’s very own Big Bank, DJ Scream and Baby Jade of “Big Facts,” and “Earn Your Leisure” hosts Rashad Bilal and Troy Millings.
