Ava Duvernay and Oprah Winfrey are powerhouse influences in the entertainment industry. And when they joined forces? They’ve created some of the most compelling content there is.

Their first collaboration was in 2014, when Oprah came on board as a producer for “Selma.” Before meeting again to work on “A Wrinkle in Time,” the two went on to create “Queen Sugar” on OWN - a television series that launched as the woman-led Black Lives Matter movement picked up steam.

Both being advocates for people of color, Duvernay and Winfrey wanted their series to encapsulate their commitment to activism - on-screen and behind-the-scenes. “Queen Sugar” is known for only hiring women to work the cameras, and for its racially progressive storylines.
