Ava Duvernay did an awesome job explaining why mass incarceration exists in this country. There is a long history of using black bodies for profit. If their goal is to make money off of us, you know they aren't going to spend much money keeping us healthy and happy. Check out @Ava 's documentary, #13th , and our Mass Ink video to discover how mass incarceration and withholding healthcare affects the health of our people on the inside and beyond.

Needed to see this. Sharing cause I have a feeling someone else does too...
A WRINKLE IN TIME (2018) Rated PG Director: Ava DuVernay Starring: Storm Reid, Levi Miller, Deric McCabe Genre: Fantasy, sci-fi, adventure 5-Second Summary: Two siblings and a friend go on an adventure to find their father and stop evil. Rating: 2 out of 5 stars So, this is DuVernay’s followup feature film to Selma. Can somebody say ‘Yikes’? So the evil mentioned in my quick summary is about the equivalent to the villain in the Green Lantern. Pretty bad. And I get the appeal. The colors are real fancy and the graphics are literally out of this world, but it’s just not good. By means of a tesseract, which is essentially capable of canceling out space and time, the three children are joined by Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who, and Mrs. Which in their travels throughout the universe. Yes, that’s right, the universe. The big one. There are a series of challenges followed by some key character strengths and flaws, and then, well, I think I stopped watching to be honest. The first, I don’t know, twenty minutes seemed alright. It tried to be too big and couldn’t handle itself. You put faces like Oprah, Reese, and Mindy on the cover and all over the trailer, all dressed up in outlandish costumes and delivering even crazier dialogue, and it may seem like a riot. Well, I got news for you. It’s not. Shining Star: I think the three children did the best acting, specifically Reid and Miller. I was just confused by everyone and everything else. If you enjoyed The BFG, The Lovely Bones, or Pan, check out A Wrinkle in Time!

@Ava DuVernay encourages others not to limit themselves in their career journey. #MondayMotivation
“I have committed everything I have to this cable network,” she said. “And I wouldn’t bet against me.” “Had I known that it was this difficult,” (Oprah) said of OWN, “I might have done something else.” But an uptick came.... OWN has found sustained success 🍾🥂 ______________________________ An important reminder that even the greats struggle with doubt in the face of challenge. Its crazy to me that despite all her success and generosity there were people who wanted her to fail....timely motivation for me as I'm chasing dreams and attempting new things. Hopefully helps somebody else too. Surround yourself with good people, stick it out through the hard times, and always bet on the winner - you! Life is tough. Be Tougher... . . #motivationmonday #oprah #inspirationalquotes #networking #emergingartist #entrepreneur #marabrockakil #avaduvernay #iyanlavanzant #ownnetwork #surroundyourselfwithgoodpeople #successquotes #gohard #atlanta #millionairenextdoor

"There's something very important about films about Black women and girls being made by Black women.

Watched 13th, documentary by Ava Duvernay, again tonight. I've watched it several times now, because I feel it is important to constantly be conscious...to stay woke. If you didn't watch it yet, can I urge you to watch it? It is on Netflix and it teaches us about the 13th amendment: from slave to criminal with one amendment. Don't say or think it has nothing to do with you, because it does..... It is ALL about OUR shared history and OUR shared future. It is about taking ownership of all the wrongs that have been made, in the past and in our todays. Because only when we are not afraid to take ownership, change can come. It's about LIVES; every life is as valuable is the other. But we must speak up, stand up and act up for those who are still oppressed, those who are still being enslaved because of a crooked and corrupt system. We need to humanize those who have been dehumanized for so long. "Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it." -George Santayana- "When we deny the story, it defines us. When we own the story we can write a brave new ending." -Brene Brown- #blacklivesmatter #thirteenthamendment #humanrights #history #future #ownership #slavery #massincarceration #prisonreform #avaduvernay #change #unity #love #equality #value #youmatter

This is one of my favorite quotes by the gorgeous, talented director. DuVernay said this following casting choices in films that were not ethnically congruent with the characters being played (see #GodsofEgypt ). I think acting creates a wonderful space to explore a person you're not, but when it comes to film and television where so many races and ethnicities are under-represented (and not because of a lack of talent), there's no reason a talented Egyptian actor should be sidestepped for a popular white actor. How does an actor become popular to begin with? First, they have to be seen. #AvaDuvernay #OscarsSoWhite #EqualRepresentation #Diversity #Accuracy #EqualOpportunity #BeingSeen (Image behind quote from AvaDuvernay.com)
Love is redemptive, education is liberation, empathy turned into action is transformative. ✌🏼🧡✊🏽💗✨🦋✨💗✊🏽🧡✌🏼 As I watched the @ava documentary, 13th (referring to the 13th Amendment) I noted some things regarding the design and intent of black suppression (understatement) that can hopefully help educate us on our path to healing and freedom. Research, unlearn and most importantly purge the systemic lies served to us by the media, our education system, our politicians and our ancestors. Find truth and transform our fears into love. ////////////////////////////////// Slavery Jim Crow Segregation Emmett Till Medgar Evers J Edgar Hoover/FBI Rosa Parks Selma/Montgomery Martin Luther king Jr. Lyndon Johnson Malcom X Angela Davis KKK White Supremacy Richard Nixon Central Park 5 Ed Koch Donald Trump 3 strikes you’re out Bill Clinton Mandatory minimum Rich and guilty/poor and innocent The War On Drugs Ronald Reagan Systemic Racism White privilege George Bush Criminal policing Stop and Frisk ALEC/CCA Khalif Browder Mass Incarceration For profit prisons Stand your ground law Voter Suppression Criminal Industrial Complex Travon Martin Freddie Gray Sam Dubose Philando Castile Terence Crutcher Alton Sterling Jamar Clark Jeremy McDole William Chapman II Walter Scott Eric Harris Tamir Rice Eric Garner Oscar Grant Akai Gurley Michael Brown Sandra Bland.....

I was beyond excited to be on set for such a historical film like "Central Park Five". I remember the story as a kid but to be on set and hear about the scenes they already shot and how emotional it has been for the cast and crew too shoot those scenes, you know your apart of something special. Walking in that jail with the green inmaite outfit on it really hits you. I never been too jail. But started think how maby as a kid living in the Bronx and just being at the wrong place and wrong time , that your future could be snacted from you. So, to be in a jail playing an inmate for a film retelling the story on how our system took away so much from.these young men it was an obligation as black man to do it right. Even if I was just a backgroung actor. Thank you too @ava fot having the courage to tell this story. Thank you too @alchemiss_jewel We always try give each other heads up on projects and opportunities. Something as black ppl we have keep doing for each other. #avaduvernay #netflix #centralparkfive #actor
In life, I have learned that “no” is either a NOT YET or NOT FOR ME.
