In this encore episode, we speak with DeMane Davis, the director of the hit OWN series Queen Sugar. We chat with DeMane about the unique way she connected with Ava DuVernay to get the opportunity to work on the series and also discuss how she approached directing the premiere episode of the most recent season.

DeMane also discusses her new role as the series Producing Director and the responsibilities and creative challenges that come with the job. And she also dissects one of the most emotionally impactful moments of Season 3 - of course we're talking about that infamous paternity test reveal scene!

Plus, Amita gives her rating and review of Sean's Big Sell - Angelique Kidjo's cover of the Talking Heads hit- "Once in a Lifetime" and sells a powerful TED Talk from Tracee Ellis Ross in the midst of the #MeToo movement.
