WATCH: T.I.'s "Black Panther" screening for Atlanta students

Atlanta rapper/actor T.I. and his wife Tiny hosted a "Black Panther" screening over the weekend for hundreds of students from Tri-Cities, Benjamin E. Mays, Druid Hills high schools and Usher's New Look Foundation.

The event was a joint project of his new nonprofit charitable organization, Harris Community Works, and the Los Angeles-based nonprofit, Go For Yours. The organizations previously hosted a screening on L.A. and will be in Chicago next. The artist also known as Clifford Harris previously teamed up with Walmart for an advance screening .

Students were selected for the screening on the strength of their academic and extracurricular achievements. "You're the real heroes!" T.I. told them. Check out the video below.
