Magazine CovHER: Ava DuVernay For Essence
The beautiful, talented Ava DuVernay is the cover girl for Essence magazine’s March 2017 issue.
In celebration of Women’s History Month, Essence made none other than Oscar-nominated director Ava the woman of choice. Not only is she an amazing director, but she’s also an activist. She’s managed to take her art of storytelling and turned it into something amazing.
Inside the issue, Ava dished on being nominated for an Oscar for her documentary 13th, diversity, her independent distribution company and women of color.
“I don’t have to approach film like a man would, or like anybody else I read about, because it’s personal. So there’s no right way or wrong way. Directors talk about their process but that doesn’t have to be my process.”
