Last week I attended the booking signing event of Issa Rae of the YouTube series Awkward Black Girl. The event took place at the Martin Luther King, Jr library in Washington, DC. I've walked past this library a million times but this was the first time I had actually gone inside. It was a packed house, so packed they had to put extra chairs out and even then people were still standing. Issa's new book is titled The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl. This is about her life whereas the Awkward Black Girl series is only a piece of her life.
