Watch that hand buddy…

Having Angela by his side must have been especially sweet for Common considering that he and musician Robert Glasper took home Emmys for the track “Letter To The Free” from Ava Duvernay’s 13th documentary.

Ava Duvernay’s 13th doc not only picked up a win for Common’s song, it won three more Emmys last night. During her speech for Outstanding Documentary or Non-Fiction Special Ava spoke candidly on the trauma experienced by families of those who’ve fallen victim to mass incarceration.

“It was a beautiful process but it was an emotional process to steep yourself in,” said Ava according to Deadline.

“I want to thank, and think about tonight the hundreds of thousands of families who are waiting for their loved ones to come home,” she said. “Mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, who don’t know where their loved one is. Unsung heroes of a struggle that has not a lot to do with them, but has a lot to do with how they live each day.”

We see you, Queen!
