Posted on

Tyler Perry, the successful mutli-hyphenate behind such movie hits as Madea Goes To Jail and TV series like House of Payne, has made a $1 million donation to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, according to the AP. Perry’s gift is reportedly the biggest donation from a single individual that the NAACP has ever received. Perry said he was moved to make the donation in part to honor the NAACP’s 100th anniversary.
