Filmmaker Ava DuVernay

Last month we covered two of the CBS Mornings interviews conducted by philanthropist Melissa French Gates at The Ebell, in celebration of Women’s History Month.  The third interview, with filmmaker Ava DuVernay, was broadcast on Tuesday, March 22, and can be seen here.

DuVernay, director of Selma and When They See Us, is the highest grossing black female director in US box office history.

Judy Garland’s discovery on our Ebell stage also gets a mention!
