When Issa Rae started her career on YouTube in 2011 with a self-directed series, Awkward Black Girl, her work took off and her journey into Hollywood began. From directing, producing, and acting, she is multi-talented, creating a long-lasting legacy, and paving the way for more Black creators. Rae recently launched her media company, Hoorae Media. This will be the home to all her creative ventures.
As she continues to reach the height of her career, she worked with MasterClass to release 14 videos of virtual classes about working in the television industry. By doing so, her hope is to pay it forward for the next generation of creators. Issa’s HBO hit series, Insecure is in development for its fifth and final season, making room for her to do even more!
