Sending bright, bold energy to this bright, bold spirit for her new year of life. A beautiful birthday to you, dearest @ReeseWitherspoon. May the sun continue to shine on you and keep you safe and warm. 🌞

Moving out of my trailer on set and into the edit bay. The next phase of WRINKLE IN TIME is about to begin! 🙌🏾

Beyond proud to announce the first three directors of QUEEN SUGAR Season Two: Kat Candler, Cheryl Dunye and Aurora Guerrero! Incredible women! Dynamic filmmakers! And now QUEEN SUGAR family. xo

We wrapped principal photography for WRINKLE IN TIME this weekend! An epic adventure. I loved each and every solitary minute. Thanks to our truly beautiful cast and crew and our studio for standing with me every step of the way. Extraordinary experience. WRINKLE IN TIME travels to theaters everywhere on April 6, 2018! xo!

But not the last. ✊🏾

The women + men of @WrinkleInTime's beautiful crew believe in equality for all, regardless of gender, race, time, space or dimension. Onward! #IWD

A thrill to be photographed by the great @PatrickDemarchelier for @VanityFair. A cool portfolio about creative people and their style. A fun shoot! Nice to be included! xo

Best part of my #Oscars2017? Being there with my mother, the elegant and gorgeous Darlene Maye of Compton, California. Looking ravishing in her beautiful, beaded @AdriannaPapell gown, courtesy of our friends at @PistolandStamen. Mom's makeup by the great @VondaKMorris. Mom's smile is all her own. Love this lady! xo!

On behalf of my fellow producers and all the artists and activists who participated in #13th , we thank our families at home, we think of the families who are waiting for their incarcerated loved ones to come home, and we thank our family at Netflix: #TedSarandos and #LisaNishimura . Thank you for making the telling of this story possible, a story that shouldn't have had to be told. A story that this country will have to tell again and again, unless we change the direction we are going. Now more than ever, when people of all kinds are actively and aggressively being devalued and dehumanized by the current administration - poor people, working people, black people, brown people, Muslim people, Native people, immigrating people, incarcerated people, women people, artist people, press people, transgender people, people with disabilities - it is imperative for those of us who believe in justice and dignity for all to fight for each other. I believe in our power. It is greater than the powers that seek to divide us. Power to the people. ✊🏾

I love a good selfie! Fun with family and friends last night! #Oscars

A small sign of solidarity. I chose to wear a gown by a designer from a majority Muslim country. Thanks to @AshiStudio of Lebanon. And the artists known as @kimblehaircare @narsuzo @jasonbolden and @damoneroberts for your support, friendship and lovely work on this appearance tonight. Appreciate y'all. #Oscars

I always have a blast at the #SpiritAwards . It's a celebration of independence in cinema. This year saw a lovely, inclusive selection of pictures. Thanks to everyone at @FilmIndependent and all our fellow nominated filmmakers. Also grateful to @jasonbolden @narsuzo @vernonfrancois @lovesuja and @gucci for helping me brush off the director's dust and look presentable. Good times. xo!
