Explore our newest learning companion based on the critically-acclaimed OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network series QUEEN SUGAR! Created by filmmaker Ava DuVernay, and airing for seven seasons, the one-hour drama delved into the heart and soul of Black America through the saga of the Bordelon family. From incarceration, police brutality and gentrification to co-dependency, entrepreneurship, enslavement and identity, the drama series has boldly tackled narrative change with an eye toward true social impact. This guide builds on the show’s themes, weaving together a timeline of American history with the family history of the Bordelon family.
The ARRAY 101 QUEEN SUGAR Learning Companion is now available for free at ARRAY101.org, an initiative provides educational materials based on the series.
