  • Not thugs. Not wilding. Not criminals. Not even the Central Park Five. They are Korey, Antron, Raymond, Yusef, Kevin. They are millions of young people of color who are blamed, judged and accused on sight. May 31. Netflix. A film in four parts about who they really are. WHEN THEY SEE US.

  • Oscar Week. Two more nights until the town goes back to normal. But as of now, about to hit the 7th out of 10 parties scheduled this week. I mean, I love seeing folks and celebrating Oscars and all, but we are all really overdoing it. And with that, I’m off. LOL. Thanks for the blush and stuff, @adamburrell. And @therealsirtony for the loc love. #OscarMania

  • Happy Valentine’s Day to the one who has my heart. The best nephew a girl can have. He’s just a little peanut butter cup. Just a little sweetie pie brownie with a cherry on top. Squeeze your loved ones today! Happy Love Day!

  • This woman is my light. For many decades now she’s brightened my days just with the thought of her. My sister @TeraDuVernay is the heartbeat of our family. She holds us all together with a grace and strength that’s hard to describe. And I am forever grateful. Tera, I don’t care if you are a top exec at the most popular new American landmark and a mother and a wife and a real grownup! You are still and forever my Teri Beri. And I will pinch your cheeks when I see you. That’s just how this big sister thing works. 🤷🏽‍♀️ Sorry. And I love you. And Happy Birthday, my Beautiful Beri! xo

  • One of the strongest actors of any age that I’ve worked with. His chops are ridiculous. Like, there was a time on set when our background actors literally burst into applause after his scene. That kinda ridiculous. He does the great Korey Wise justice. This love from TEEN VOGUE is very deserved, @jharreljerome. Stay brave in your work and suave in your photo shoots, sir. The untold story of the Central Park Five is coming soon. xo
