The "Awkward Black Girl" is coming to Madison! Issa Rae, HBOs first Black writer and producer, is coming for a free lecture and Q&A session to kick off Black History Month at UW-Madison!

Issa Rae is best known as the star and co-creator of the Golden Globe series, INSECURE, which premiered this past October on HBO. Coming off her second straight year on the Forbes Magazine’s 30 Under 30 List, she was named by The Rolling Stone as “one of the 23 funniest people in America.” Between her digital following and her presence as a strong African American female role model, Issa has been profiled by The New York Times, National Public Radio (NPR), The Washington Post and CNN. She released a book of essays entitled THE MISADVENTURES OF AWKWARD BLACK GIRL published by Simon & Schuster in 2015.
