The director also showed her support for the N.W.A. biopic and the man behind it this past Friday. To promote Straight Outta Compton, Beats by Dre set up a website so that fans could make their own hip-hop-inspired album covers. DuVernay’s is a tribute to her childhood growing up in Compton, California.
DuVernay spoke briefly about her life in Compton to Rolling Stone. “There are no independent movie houses in communities of color in this country,” she said. What kept her passion for film alive, she continued, were her weekly trips to the multiplex with her aunt.
