Hellur!: Tyler Perry, $1 Billion
Rounding out the list at #7 is Tyler Perry, the creator of the wildly successful “Madea” movies, starting with his directorial debut on Madea’s Family Reunion. Coming from a troubled childhood in New Orleans, Perry broke out as a playwriter in Atlanta in the early ’90s. Building up his audience of Black fans, he used his following to break into film, television, and more. Besides the string of hit movies, Perry has produced successful television shows with Orpah Winfrey’s OWN channel and BET and even opened up his own movie studio. Always giving back to the community, Perry used his studio to feed 5,000 families Thanksgiving dinner in 2020.
