It’s easy to watch “The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl” and ask yourself, why didn’t I think of this? I’m black. I’m awkward. And I’ve certainly had more than a few of the same experiences J describes every week. Well, loves that’s not how the cookie crumbled. And instead of you, Issa Rae was the one with the master plan. And though it may seem like she skyrocketed to success overnight, Issa has had her fair share of struggle.

And it’s the journey to the top that she shares with film maker, Jabari Johnson of “Jabari Presents.”  Issa shares the journal entry she wrote when she first came up with the idea, the financial struggles she endured to get to this point and what’s next.
