Ava DuVernay Discusses Inclusion Riders at 'Queen Sugar' Panel at PaleyFest 2018

Ava DuVernay spoke about inclusiveness and inclusion riders during a Queen Sugar panel discussion at 2018 Paleyfest on Saturday afternoon (March 24) at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

The executive producer opened up about Frances McDormand referencing inclusion riders during her Oscars acceptance speech.

“I was overjoyed to hear Frances say that. She didn’t have to, and to utter those words on an international stage and to dig into those things that many of us have been working on for a while,” she said.

“Luckily we’re on OWN, and everything that we do, from the offices to our sets really reflects different kinds of cultures,” she said of Queen Sugar.
