Youtube Phenomenon, Issa Rae wrote, produced, and starred her way to hella cash with her creative genius in the online series, "Misadventures Of An Awkward Black Girl". The hilariously comedic and realistic series gave all quirky, awkward Black girls their very own superhero. In the series Issa Rae plays herself, as she navigates life after college, dating, and working while Black.
In her latest project, Insecure, not much has changed for the awkward Issa. Eerily realistic Issa plays out every late 20, early 30 something's life with her bestie in toe. Issa and Molly put on display the torture of dating as a successful Black woman, and the fine line between being a ride or die, or a comfortable bih. The exact, and finely detailed nuances of life, and life's most awkward situations which are impeccably portrayed in Rae's work are uncanny. (I'm convinced Issa is the feds and has been keeping tabs on all of us).
With grace, beauty, and an air of delicacy Issa brings to life a new, and vital narrative for Black women in media. Taking care to include Black men as well, she has cast herself into a newly established hierarchy of Black creators. Airing every Sunday on HBO, the series is one you don't want to miss! With just 30 minute episodes each week viewers are left craving more. Get your dose of reality, and painfully funny bestie drama in Insecure now.
