The Meaning of "Go, Ree-Ree!" in Queen Sugar Credits

Aired on 11/15/2017 | CC tv-pg
As many Queen Sugar fans well know, at the end of every episode a voice can be heard saying, "Go, Ree-Ree!" However, few people know its source: Ava DuVernay's mother. Here, Ava opens up about her childhood nickname and why it was incorporated into the title card sequence for her production company, Forward Movement, at the end of each episode.

The season finale of Queen Sugar begins Wednesday at 9/8c, followed by Oprah's season finale special at 10:30/9:30c.
