Queens will be Queens.
Ava DuVernay is not shy when it comes to her sharing opinions on Hollywood and how they treat both people of color and women.
In fact, as a black female director, the Golden Globe-nominee has a personal stake in the matter, which makes her latest news all that more exciting!
While interviewing with Reelblack at the Sundance Film Festival on Wednesday, Ava disclosed that in an effort to promote her peers, her upcoming OWN drama Queen Sugar will feature an all-female directorial team!
Rutina Wesley, Dawn-Lyen Gardner, Kofi Siriboe, and Omar J. Dorsey begin shooting in New Orleans this February, and we cannot wait to see the finished product next season.
Bet we don’t see an #EmmysSoWhite later in the year.
Ch-ch-check out Ava’s inspiring video announcement (below)!!!
