What life is like after you win an Academy Award;
How she almost (unknowingly) passed up a chance to meet Beyoncé and produce Lemonade;
Black Panther 2 and a potential upcoming project with Lucasfilm.
"I think the actual challenge, for me, was fear. It was fear. It was fear that I was going to misrepresent. It was fear of my own bias, my own unknown bias that had been drilled down into me — that I didn't even know was there — that kept coming up, and struggling with that, struggling with doing right by the culture." — Hannah Beachler
