Filmmaker Ava DuVernay made history at this years Sundance Film Festival in Utah by becoming the first African American woman to win the Directing Award – Dramatic.

This was a monumental moment for all African Americans industry-wide, as it obviously hasn’t been done before.

Her film, “Middle of Nowhere,” made waves at its reveal last week and now stands testament to DuVernay’s abilities.

The film is a drama that chronicles a woman’s separation from her incarcerated husband and her journey to reconcile her marriage and her identity. She believes her work is really for the Black audience, those who want to see a more well rounded perspective of Black life.

“I always loved film, but I never considered making my own. I think that’s just a kind of thing: a little black girl from Compton not having any examples of black women making their own movies.”  Ava DuVerney

He covers everything from the impact of Eazy-E and LL Cool J to growing up in a Crip neighborhood to Oreo cookies. He even shares that he was laughed at the first time he wrote a rhyme. This is the story of Where It All Began in hip-hop for Murs.
