2016 was the year of the Awkward Black Girl. Hands Down.
Issa Rae is everything. Just Google her. I remember the ABG days as if they were yesterday and I’m extremely happy for everything she’s accomplished since then. Her HBO debut, Insecure, landed her a Golden Globe nomination and even though she didn’t get it, you better believe, 2016 was just Issa getting her feet wet.
If you follow her Instagram, she just announced that she’s back for blood with season 2 of Insecure is back on July 23.
JULY 23, people. Mark your calendar.
My new obsession is this show on Netflix called Chewing Gum and it is FUN-NY!! Like open-mouth cackling. It’s written by and starring the beautiful Michaela Coel from the UK. Excellent casting. Excellent story. The show is black excellence and I can’t wait for season/series 2.
I also like to give YouTube a browse every (other) day. There’s some interesting stuff happening on the the interwebs. Another web series, Ackee and Saltfish, is dope as hell. Just two best friends chopping it up about (not-so) serious shit on the streets of London.
