Issa Rae is an American actress, writer, director, producer, and web series creator. She first garnered attention for her work on the YouTube web series Awkward Black Girl. She subsequently gained further recognition for creating, co-writing, and starring in the HBO television series Insecure.
Issa Rae, Golden Globe and Emmy-nominated creator and star of Insecure, and writer and director Stella Meghie, join author Roxane Gay for a discussion of their new film, The Photograph—a powerful multigenerational story of love, family history, and art. Already generating buzz for the project from critics and audiences alike, Rae and Meghie discuss the making of the film and Rae’s effortless chemistry with co-star Lakeith Stanfield—along with stories from behind the scenes, why we need more romantic movies in 2020, and much more.
As usual, Issa Rae is out here doing the most. She joins Rebecca Carroll to talk about the return of Insecure, how she’s supporting the next generation of black artists, and why black audiences matter the most to her.
