It’s #selfcaresunday and sometimes the best way to recharge is through good ole entertainment. Today’s #media #maverick #wemaker Ava DuVernay @ava is winner of the Emmy, BAFTA and Peabody Awards, an Academy award nominee, writer, director, producer and film distributor. Her company @ArrayNow is an industry leader, directing and distributing work by Black filmmakers and hosting powerful conversations on racial equity. And her directorial work includes SELMA, the criminal justice documentary 13TH and Disney’s A WRINKLE IN TIME, which made her the highest grossing black woman director in American #boxoffice history. Based on the infamous case of The Central Park Five, her next project is WHEN THEY SEE US and will be released worldwide on @Netflix this month. Currently, she is overseeing production on her TV series QUEEN SUGAR, her new CBS limited series THE RED LINE and her upcoming OWN series CHERISH THE DAY. Starting out as a publicist and going on to win the 2012 Sundance award for her first short, DuVernay is an example that it’s never too late to find your purpose. She also knows that power comes from being a decider, and sits on the advisory board of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, and chairs the Prada Diversity Council. .
