“I certainly see more doors opening for Black women and people of color,”

“And of course I celebrate it. But I also have a healthy yearning for more. The way to continue opening these doors is by continuing to do what we’re doing”

“So I appreciate our writers and producers for standing by this vision to have a Black woman at the helm. I’m so very humbled by it and innovated by it. I just hope that this keeps spreading. I think it will.”
