Ava DeVernay<br />

“Live the<br />

Dream, We are<br />

the dream!”<br />

Ava DeVernay NAACP image awards speech accented an amazing night. What makes<br />

her award so interesting is that she is a director and not your typical in front of the<br />

camera entertainer. She was named entertainer of the year and during her acceptance<br />

speech, took a moment to speak to the black community about using our<br />

creativity to create change.<br />

DeVernay indicated that entertainment black power players are on the rise. As Du-<br />

Vernay accepted her award, she lauded other black artists from the stage naming writers<br />

and directors such as Shonda Rhimes, Gina Prince-Bythewood, Kenya Barris, Lena<br />

Waithe, Black Panther’s Ryan Coogler, and more! She touts that "We can say we were<br />

here when all this gorgeous creative art is happening, and that we support it. We are<br />

lifting each up that as Dr. Martin Luther King has “Live the Dream, We are the Dream!”<br />

In the last several years black media creativity has exploded. From accolades for academy<br />

awards, to hit TV shows, to blockbuster movies, black creativity has gone mainstream<br />

and Ava DeVernay is one of those mavericks on the cusp of making a major<br />

difference in the entertainment field. Now movie studios, television content providers<br />

are now seeking out black talent and creatives to deliver compelling cinema and content<br />

with great fan fair.<br />

Never Get Discouraged,<br />

Think positive!<br />

<strong>Glamour</strong> <strong>Life</strong><br />

There isn’t a single person who<br />

doesn’t experience hardship and<br />

even trauma in their. <strong>Life</strong> can be<br />

hard, from growing up in poverty to<br />

hunger, to violence to maintaining a<br />

job and there are a litany of things<br />

that cause stress. The good thing is<br />

even if supposed “bad” things are always<br />

happening you can “choose”<br />

how you respond to them. There will<br />

always be challenges because that is<br />

what life is about, but keep in mind<br />

with the challenges there comes<br />

times of happiness.<br />

You got to believe that the times of<br />

happiness will continue and deliver<br />

what you want. It all comes down to<br />

having a positive attitude. Not letting<br />

things that cause stress to take over<br />

your mind. Be determined to make<br />

negative circumstances and events a<br />

learning moment. And then put them<br />

behind you and focus on being positive<br />

and what’s the next amazing adventure.<br />

Never get discouraged because if you are diligently focusing on the positives they will eventually<br />

return and be at the front of your life. Always look at bad circumstances as temporary<br />

and believe that God will always deliver happiness no matter where you are in life. Make a<br />

commitment to be positive and happy all the time even in hard times.<br />
