While I feel the narrative was a bit rushed in some respects, I love how the Queen Sugar writers are reckoning with the ways daughters inherent patterns from their mothers.

The saga of the three Bordelon siblings reuniting at the family-owned sugarcane farm after their father's death is rich in its examination of how families support one another.

The situation these characters face is all too typical and frustrating to watch. And the Bordelons keep on daring nevertheless.

Despite his refreshingly forward thinking relationships with the men in his life, Ralph-Angel's simmering disdain for the women around him deserves closer examination.

Queen Sugar's approach works exactly because it doesn't resort to excessive violence or torture porn to make its point.

I ... just love how their little teenage love affair is blossoming right before our eyes.

The midpoint of season two leaves us wondering: What happens when the Bordelons fight back?

Sep 26, 2017 | Full Review…

I love that in making a show for Black viewers Ava Duvernay and Oprah Winfrey decided to take a softer touch. A series can be groundbreaking for its storytelling and centering of Blackness without breaking our hearts and spirits in the process.
