If y’all didn’t know – now you know: you should be watching “Black Actress”, a new webseries that recently premiered on Issa Rae’s channel. It gets past the flat tropes of the “angry black woman” or “strong black woman” typically characterized in the media. Instead, what they do is show black women as human beings: with feelings, insecurities, love interests, heartbreaks, and career frustrations. It’s funny, thought-provoking and well-directed – I’ll be watching and you should be too!
Black girls – they’re just like you!
