The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl

Issa Rae received her B.A. from Stanford University, where she produced and directed four theatrical productions.  Because film was her true passion, she took time off from Stanford to attend the New York Film Academy, where she honed her filmmaking skills.  “The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl” is Rae’s third web series and it has been featured on several sites and publications.  Rae recently signed with UTA and 3 Arts Entertainment with plans to turn ABG into a cable half-hour comedy.
