The night was capped off with a special moment, when FRKO and Eastside Chris took to the stage to present Grip : mother with a custom piece of art and let her know how much her son meant to Atlanta. Grip Plyaz was a local hip-hop legend who supported A3C every year, but tragically lost a 2 year battle with cancer, recently.
Mayor Kasim Reed and Atlanta City Councilmember and mayoral candidate Keisha Lance-Bottoms were in attendance to give a warm welcome and show their support for the event that has thrived in ATL for over a decade. “There is no better way to start the 13th annual A3C Festival & Conference. Gathering friends, activists and entrepreneurs to honor and acknowledge some people we really respect and admire. It was a special night and we look forward to a great week”, Mike Walbert stated.
