We’re in the middle of The Tanning of America week here at VH1, and, in addition to the four-part television event airing Feb. 24-27 at 11 PM ET, last week’s screening was quite the star-studded gathering. Steve Stoute, author of the book that inspired the series, was in attendance. Hip-hop legends Nas and Fab Five Freddy showed up, too. Comedy icon Jerry Seinfeld made an appearance, as did Video Music Box creator Ralph McDaniels and our own #HipHopChangedUs contributor Sharon Carpenter. The message of The Tanning of America became a reality on this special night. Check out more photos in our gallery to see what else went down.
