Meet J. She’s Black. And she’s Awkward. From the creative genius of Issa Rae, comes the hilarious web series, “The Mis-Adventures of Awkward Black Girl.” Forget the weaves, materialism and cat fights–“Awkward Black Girl” brings much needed balance to the current depictions of African-American women in film and on TV. The series follows J as she tries to deal with her various dysfunctional co-workers: a culturally insensitive boss who compares her ‘fro to pubic hair, a stuck-up and snotty manager (Nina), and her unrequited crush on the office hottie, Fred.
