Oprah Winfrey, Ava DuVernay & Storm Reid Cover Essence Magazine’s February Issue
Here’s what the cast shared with the magazine:
Storm Reid on the gravity of the movie – This is a huge milestone in my career, to be in a movie with Ava DuVernay directing and Miss Oprah being in it. When I think about it, I don’t really know how to feel. There are so many emotions. But it’s just a great blessing that will forever change my life.
Ava DuVernay on the magnitude of the project – When I’m introduced as the first this, first that… it doesn’t mean anything to me. It’s not anything I earned. I don’t allow myself to take it in like it’s real. I’m trying to have all of us up in there and more. I don’t want to be someplace by myself. I don’t want to be on a pedestal as the first this and that. That’s so wack; that is the old way of thinking.
