You know what that means!  More of our stories being brought to life!Viola Davis famously said:22The only thing that separates women of color from anyone else is opportunity. You cannot win an Emmy for roles that are simply not there.23

Andgirlfriend meant it because she's just inked a deal with ABC for her new production company, JuVee Productions, which she owns with her husband.  The deal includes content for cable, streaming, broadcast and digital.  She'll be everywhere!She joins our girl, Kerry Washington, who owns Simpson Street Productions and also has a similar deal with ABC.  Simpson Street was behind the recent movie Confirmation, that details the Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill Scandal (no pun intended....well, maybe a little bit).

Bravo to both Davis and Washington for being DOERS rather than just DREAMERS!  Not only are they brilliant and talented actresses,but they are great examples of creating the change you want to see in the world.
