Black-directed films take top two spots at box office for the first time

A Wrinkle in Time directed by Ava DuVernay has helped to make history at the box office.
 
The movie, which stars Reese Witherspoon, Oprah Winfrey and Mindy Kaling, came in second place to Disney's other big film Black Panther.
 
It is the first time films by black directors with $100 million plus budgets have ever placed in the first two box office spots.
 
Black Panther director Ryan Coogler penned an essay about his friend DuVernay in honor of her movie's opening.
