Nova and Charlie in conversation behind a windowpane on Queen Sugar from the Oprah Winfrey Network

Queen Sugar

One of the best series to air on television in 2016 was “Queen Sugar” on OWN.  This was accomplished by the talents of an all female directorial team and executive produced by Oprah Winfrey and Ava Duvernay.

The turnaround of the Queen Sugar Bordelons (OWN)

The story is about three siblings that inherit a farm near New Orleans.  But it is also about the ways that life is a grey area, how economic and social realities tie into the past, and how family members navigate themselves and each other.
