Hey Sacred Bombshell,
Producer, writer and director Issa Rae burst onto the scene with “The Mis-Adventures of Awkward Black Girl.” Her “Ratchet Theater” web series took things to another level. She is now (deservedly) in camp with Shonda Rhimes, HBO and Pharrell Williams. Yes!
I interviewed her at the Reel Sisters of the Diaspora Film Festival and Lecture Series. I was hosting and Issa was being honored with the much-deserved Pioneer Award. Issa’s advice and inspiration in this inspiring interview is about more that how to create a successful web TV series. The talented and Stanford educated beauty gives inspiration for writers and all creative people on how to live your dreams.
