Supa Ava DuVernay’s ascension to Hollywood black royalty status has been something of a Cinderella story, and with her most recent achievement, her tale just got that much richer—so to speak.

From her brief affair with a career in journalism that included covering the OJ Simpson trial for CBS News to her turn as a film publicist, she knew she wanted to work in film.
