Hundreds packed into the intimate Over Da Edge Lounge & restaurant on Wednesday night to see and hear popular radio host Warren Ballentine speak. Ballentine is an attorney who hosts the very popular Warren Ballentine Show on 102.5 (Grown Folks Radio) here in Atlanta.
My photographer Freddyo said the club was so packed there was no parking even blocks away. Ballentine sparked controversy when he told his radio listeners that he was voting for Barack Obama because Obama is black.
Ballentine challenged his listeners to “reevaluate your blackness” if they are black and don’t vote for Obama too. “Ain’t no white person going to tell me about black issues. He’s black, he knows what I’ve been through,” said Ballentine.
More photos from the party later.
Thanks to Ray Hamilton for the personal invite!
