Korey’s heart is with the people. And the people’s hearts are with him. He’s constantly in his community. Showing up. Lending a hand. Listening. Donating. Present. He doesn’t do it for the limelight. He does it when the lights ain’t on. He does it ‘cause he loves Harlem. So much.

@brendadc  @amelissa5That ’s right. My full name is Ava Marie DuVernay. My Mom lifted the “Marie” out, repeated the last syllable twice for some reason and there you have it - RiRi. Makes total sense, right? That’s my Mom’s voice you hear. She’s the ONLY one who calls me that, per her rules! LOL. 🤓

Yep, that’s me. You nailed it. And happy Wednesday morning to you too!

This needs to happen on EVERY lie. It's up to the press to do this EVERY time. Go hard, y'all. On EVERY lie.

An ignorant question leads Dr. King to offer a strong lesson in black history in two minutes flat. I can tell that he’s slightly irritated, but also determined to break it ALL the way down. Which he does brilliantly. A king. #MLK90

To @TheAcademy , You disqualified Nigeria’s first-ever submission for Best International Feature because its in English. But English is the official language of Nigeria. Are you barring this country from ever competing for an Oscar in its official language?

Thank you to of and many others who identified the proud Native man who is being harassed. He is Mr. Nathan Phillips. I’m reposting this video from “ka_ya11” on IG. This man’s words pierce my heart. The grace. The wisdom. The hope.

The mother of #JazmineBarnes  on the fatal shooting of her 7-year old daughter. Killer pulled up to the family in his red truck and fired shots directly into their car. Jazmine died at the scene. Dec 30. Houston. Murderer is a white male, 40s and is still at large. #SayHerName 

Everyone should see themselves on-screen. Like literally, everyone.

We can get mad at this. Tweet up a storm. Call him names. All those things. Or - we can do the only thing that really matters. Vote. Them. Out. November 6. Midterms. Diminish his power. Batter his ego. Raise your voice. Show them all who’s boss. Justice and dignity will prevail.
