Director Ava DuVernay with David Oyelowo, André Holland, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Glynn Turman, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe at the premiere of her short film August 28: A Day In The Life Of A People.

The film focuses on six significant events in African-American history that occurred on August 28th and will play exclusively at The Smithsonian. August 28 depicts the 1955 lynching of 14-year-old Emmett Till in Mississippi and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1963 “I Have A Dream” speech during the massive March on Washington and will also look at the 2005 date that Hurricane Katrina made its tragic landfall and the Denver night in 2008 when Barack Obama accepted the Democrats nomination as the first African-American to be a major American political party’s Presidential candidate.

hi! 

So, I’m assuming that most of you have noticed that my posting has been sporadic lately. I just wanted to let everyone know the reason for this is: I just started the fall semester and it’s already extremely hectic. I’m being thrown from class to class, and still trying to maintain a social life. Plus, I’m commuting – so that’s another hour used up in the day. 

Hopefully, I’ll get shit under control so you’ll get fics on a more… daily-basis. 

I’ll try writing something short right now to get back into the hang of things! 

goodnight, xoxo
