A Complete List of All The Queen Sugar Women Directors

One of the best things about Ava DuVernay’s OWN series Queen Sugar is the amount of women directors she employs per season. And considering every episode is directed by a woman…exactly.

Can we just take a moment and clap it up for her.

DuVernay and the Queen Sugar women directors must be doing something right because the series (which is a personal favorite of mine) will return for a fourth season.
