Ava DuVernay is hurting at the loss of the late Nipsey Hussle whom she says was a close friend to her. She won a free expression award and dedicated it to Nipsey in her acceptance speech.
She says she will remember Nipsey as;
“I’ll remember him this way. Bright, genuine, forward thinking.
I’ll remember the beauty that he saw in our community. And the beauty that he was.
He loved us. He’s left that love with us. And it cannot die.
Rest in Power, King. You mattered.
Ava also commented the media and noted that the coverage around Nipsey Hussle’s death was very well balanced, informative and respectful.
She pointed out that it seemed the media houses had upped their game and hired journalists who knew and understood the culture well and so the narrative was well controlled.
