Successful Black Women: Ava Duvernay

Working to reshape Hollywood from behind the camera, this director founded a film collective dedicated to independent women and minority filmmakers and just partnered with Los Angeles on a $500,000 diversity initiative. She’s making history with her film as well, as the first black woman to win the directing award at Sundance, the first to be nominated for the Best Picture Oscar, and the first to direct a film with a $100 million budget.
