The Misadventures Of Awkward Black Girl

I've been following a great web series called The Misadventures Of Awkward Black Girl and I love it. It is hilarious and Issa Rae is so brilliant as the lead actress and writer of the show.By this Episode, episode 7 The White Date, Issa's charater J has had a crush on her very handsome new colleague Fred for a while but is unsure how their relationship will progress. When she meets his white friend also named J and also very cute, there's definitely some chemistry. They agree to go on a date and well, both trying to impress each other hilarity and awkwardness ensues. Seriously, I laughed my ass off. For more on the show and how you can support it click on the links below. Also,check out the Huffington Post article on how Issa and the gang were able to raise $56,259 through Kickstarter. Well done to Issa and the team for surpassing their target and that fantastic result. Issa is a great example of how black women can control their own images, showcase our broad range of experiences beyond stereotypes and create new opportunities through some guts and initiative. I really want to see The Misadventures Of Awkward Black Girl bought by a tv network.


  1. Me too! This show is amazing, I count down to my next fix. I wish it was longer and more regular. Issa is making some great industry connections so hopefully this will happen and it will eventually find a network that will allow her to still have creative control.
