we’ve been fans of issa rae since the first season of the misadventures of awkward black girl. if you’ve never seen the show: get your life. the uber talented writer, actress and producer is gaining major star power with a new book and hbo pilot. the show, called insecure, chronicles “the awkward experiences and racy tribulations of a modern-day African-American woman.” let’s hope the pilot makes it into production! in the meantime, read her book, watch her you tube channel and laugh hard.
