For Ava DuVernay, the award-winning director behind Selma, that intersection took place in the very first episode of Queen Sugar, the new original drama that she created and produced for the Oprah Winfrey Network about the ups and down of three African-American siblings after their father passes away and leaves them a Louisiana sugarcane farm.
