Essence Magazine Issa Rae Awesome Black Girl April 2019
Awkward Awesome Black Girl On the eve of her next movie, Little, Issa Rae retraces her journey to feeling beautiful in New Orleans. Issa Rae laughs mightily-it's a ringing laugh that may be familiar to viewers of her hit HBO show, Insecure. It's the laugh we get when she's nailing her impeccable comedic timing while in character, except that this laugh is unscripted.
As her current fit of giggles starts to settle into a melodic minor scale, Rae is being her most authentic self: part brainy, part silly and playful, and wholeheartedly confident.
