She’s got an Oscar, Golden Globe and 4 Emmys… and last fall became the first black woman director to premiere a film at the Venice Film Festival and is in the running to become the first black woman director nominated for an Oscar this year. She also made her debut as host on Saturday Night Live last weekend!
Let’s celebrate the amazing Black People Magic of Regina King… as she gets ready to star in a film about another magical black woman – Shirley Chisholm!
It was just announced this week that Regina will star in and produce “Shirley.” It’s set to be directed by Oscar winner John Ridley and will focus on Chisholm’s historic run for president in 1972 and all her ground-breaking work as a politician and crusader for black and women’s rights.
The film is set to start production later this year. In the meantime, if you haven’t done it yet, check out her directorial debut, “One Night in Miami.”
& Remember to always celebrate your magic! xo
