The cast of Oprah Winfrey Network’s Greenleaf and Ava Duvernay’s Queen Sugar stunned on the red carpet this past Friday, August 11. This event powered by OWN was a prelude to an A&E reception during the 2017 National Association of Black Journalists 42nd annual Convention in New Orleans.

Before Greenleaf aired its day one of its two-day midseason premiere Tuesday Lynn Whitfield (A Thin Line Between Love and Hate & Eve’s Bayou), Merle Dandridge (Sons of Anarchy & The Night Shift) and Lamman Rucker (Why Did I Get Married? & All My Children) were in attendance.

While the show will be picking up with the second half of season two this month, the show has already been contracted for a third season, according to EBONY Magazine.
