Photo Flash: John Legend, Danai Gurira, Omari Hardwick and More Party at Midnight MACRO at Sundance
Day 2 at the MACRO Lodge presented by Shea Moisture went out with a bang!
Mistaken multiple times for TAO by passersby due to the overwhelming crowd waiting to get in, Midnight MACRO hosted by Charles and Stacey King, at the MACRO Lodge on Main St was Saturday night's best party. The overcapacity event brought in not only the cast of MACRO's Sorry to Bother You (Tessa Thompson, Lakeith Stanfield, Steven Yeun, Director Boots Riley) which had its Sundance premiere earlier in the evening, but also saw a number of the festival's other attendees including BLACK-ISH creator Kenya Barris, Omari Hardwick, Anthony Ramos (She's Gotta Have It), Coleman Domingo, Lena Waithe, Danai Gurira, John Legend, Issa Rae and INSECURE co-star Jay Ellis, Gabby Sidobe, and Chris Hardwick.
Legendary DJ D-Nice kept the crowd going well after 2am.

MACRO was founded by Charles King in 2015 to represent the voices of persons of color in front of and behind the screen. They create and finance film, television and digital content, technologies and brands which are driven by POCs that encompass Universal themes to which all people can connect and relate. Some of their work includes Mudbound (last year's biggest Sundance deal), Fences, Roman J. Israel, Esq., and competing this year, Sorry to Bother You. They are also currently working on television series' with Ava DuVernay, Van Jones, and Raising Dion with Michael B. Jordan coming to Netflix.
