A black boy and a Barbie named Kenya: Why Ava DuVernay's 'Queen Sugar' goes where many black stories won't
Director Ava DuVernay is no stranger to being bold.

“We are gathered here today—”

She’s beautiful, Eggsy thinks, not for the first time and not for the last time. She has dark hair and even darker eyes, a small, sharp face. She doesn’t smile much; she’s the kind of woman who gets accosted in the streets by men telling her to cheer up, love. She’s also the kind of woman who snaps her fingers to have them beaten to a bloody pulp when they do.

The infrequency of her smiles makes it all the more special when she does smile. And she smiles at Eggsy, has done so quite often ever since she found him bleeding out into the pavement and nursed him back to health.

“A rash tactic,” Merlin had said dryly, “but it’s your mission, Eggsy, and you have to do what you think is best.”
