There is little Issa Rae hasn't done in her professional life. She co-created and starred in the Emmy Award-winning series television series Insecure, she's starred in and executive produced multiple critically acclaimed films, oh, and she also wrote tenderly and hilariously about her life thus far in a New York Times best-selling book, The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl (which is also the name of her award-winning web series that kicked off her whole career in 2011 because no, she is never not creating something wonderful). She's been nominated for Emmys and Golden Globes, and she's won Black Reel Awards and NAACP Image Award, and through it all, she's constantly using her platform to elevate fellow Black creators and advocate for human rights. There's no doubt Rae has stories to tell and advice to share and on Tuesday she will sit down with Seattle's own New York Times bestselling author (and former Stranger contributor) Ijeoma Oluo for a conversation that's sure to be as inspirational as it is hilarious. Go bask in their brilliance. This show is rescheduled from April; tickets to April's event will be honored.
