But hey BMWK, what did you think of part 1?

If you’re reading about Queen Sugar for the first time, NBC BLCK has a good write-up on the series, which is created and produced by acclaimed filmmaker Ava DuVernay and executive produced by Oprah Winfrey (read below).

Black Lives Matter is much more than a hashtag to Ava DuVernay.

The award-winning “Selma” filmmaker says it’s a distinct approach to life—and one that is personified in “Queen Sugar,” her latest collaboration with media mogul Oprah Winfrey.

“We’re in a Black Lives Matter moment and this is what black life looks like,” says DuVernay of the original television drama series, which launches with a two-part premiere tonight at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Winfrey’s OWN network. “Black lives matter and here are three black lives that you get to follow, get to become acquainted with and get to use as a mirror for all life. That’s what ‘Queen Sugar’ is; made with a lot of love, a lot of heart and lot of intention.”
