The event is to support fine art and to celebrate and support African-American artists whose inspiring pieces will be up for auction to support teen mentorship programs, Tina’s Angels and Richard’s Warriors as well as WACO’s Mobile Arts Theater. This event is the signature and premiere event for WACO Theater. Click through our gallery to see all the Wakanda inspired looks from Black Hollywood’s favorite stars. Which look is your favorite?
