Issa Rae: "I want to talk about my blackness on my own terms"
Remember: you're not that cool. But don't worry — writer and comedian Issa Rae assures us that no one is. The self-described "awkward black girl" sees potentially uncomfortable situations all around us, and has turned many of life's cringe-worthy moments into memorable comedy.
Today she joins guest host Jelena Adzic to discuss her new memoir, The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl, the acclaimed web series that inspired it, and how experiences of awkwardness can be both specific and universal.
