Some of Atlanta biggest singers, actors, and reality stars came together Thursday night for a special “Meet the Blacks” Celebrity Breakout experience. The outing was the perfect event to promote the hilarious new film “Meet the Blacks” which opens in theaters this weekend. It took place at Breakout Atlanta – an entertainment complex of “Escape” games featuring four (4) themed rooms where teams are tasked with solving puzzles, cracking codes, finding hidden items and clues in order to “breakout” in one hour.

“Meet the Blacks” is a parody of the “PURGE” franchise and follows an African-American family from Chicago who arrives to Los Angeles right around the time of the annual purge, when all crime is legal for twelve hours.
