Recap: Ava DuVernay Screens ’13th’ on Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend

Ava DuVernay found the perfect weekend — Martin Luther King Jr. weekend — to film her powerful Netflix documentary, “13th.”

Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos and retired U.S. Ambassador Nicole Avant hosted a reception and special conversation at their home in Los Angeles.

The conversation was moderated by none other than Oprah Winfrey, who collaborated with DuVernay on her other TV series, “Queen Sugar,” and featured DuVernay herself with CNN political commentator Van Jones. The three not only discussed the criminal justice system, but also race relations in America post election.
