Filmmaker Ava Duvernay is best known for work on Selma, Queen Sugar and now the incredible Netflix documentary, 13th.

She talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about the success of the documentary, what to expect from her new film A Wrinkle In Time and what’s next for the OWN hit, Queen Sugar.

“It’s breaking records, people are really responding. People are watching a documentary about race on Saturday nights with the boyfriend. This has always been something that’s been on my mind since I was a little girl. I’m from Compton…we see police officers and we didn’t always think safety,” Duvernay said.
