Everyone knows that Black people love them some Tevin Campbell and Ava Duvernay is no exception.The award-winning filmmaker stepped in to show her support for the “Can We Talk” singer when some on social media had the audacity to question Campbell’s current cultural relevancy.
Back in August, she tweeted that she was “rebuking any Tevin Campbell slander,” and vowed to work with the Grammy-nominated performer into an episode of OWN’s Queen Sugar.
“Plotting to write him into an episode of Queen Sugar SOMEHOW. On general principle,” she wrote then.
Duvernay has proved to be a woman who stands by her word. Campbell is scheduled to appear on the critically-acclaimed drama series this season.
