Issa Rae is not just some awkward black girl on a tv series, she is actually the creator and executive producer of the show she stars in. Come on pay attention, because this is some #BlackGirlMagic happening right before our eyes. She has just landed a new role with all that in the works.
The new role isn’t on a TV show, but this time on the big screen. In her first movie role, she’s co-starring along side Amandla Stenberg with cast members such as Regina Hall, Common, Algee Smith, Lamar Johnson, and Russell Hornsby. The movie is called The Hate U Give which is based on a book by Angela Thomas.
It seems things are happening fast with Issa Rae so we’re going to have to keep an eye out for her. I’m not sure about you, but I’m happy for her success. Although there are still barriers to be broken, it excites me to see the upward mobility of our people. I hope that motivates you to keep grinding and be yourself like Issa Rae did.
