Issa Rae: From ‘Awkward’ to ‘Insecure’

The star of ‘The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl’ on YouTube makes the leap to her own HBO show

“If anybody says they’ve never felt insecure, they’re lying,” says Issa Rae. She has built a career on that feeling. Ms. Rae, who first found fame on YouTube with her comedy series“The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl,” is about to launch the show “Insecure” on HBO. But even now, she says, she finds herself wondering, “What am I doing? Why does everybody else have it figured out, but I don’t?”

In “Insecure,” Ms. Rae, 31, plays a woman named Issa (like her real name, pronounced EE-sa) Dee, who lives in South Los Angeles. The show chronicles her and her friends as they struggle with delayed adulthood, difficult relationships and being black in America. Ms. Rae’s character works for a nonprofit group that helps underprivileged children. In the first episode, the children make fun of her clothes and her voice, implying that she looks and acts too much like a white person. She imagines her co-worker telling a group of colleagues about her low chances of getting married.

The show shares some similarities with Ms. Rae’s YouTube series, which launched in 2011. She made 24 episodes, ranging in length from about 2 to 25 minutes, and they have attracted millions of views. In one, she cuts off all her hair after her boyfriend breaks up with her—and then after he reconsiders and they get back together, he breaks up with her again because he doesn’t like her lack of hair. And her character is constantly exasperated with her colleagues at Gutbusters, a fictional diet-pill company where she is a telemarketer; she eventually gets sent to anger-management counseling. Last year, she wrote a book with the same title as her YouTube series.

Growing up, Ms. Rae attended both public and private schools, mainly in Los Angeles. She didn’t quite feel that she belonged to any group: She felt that she was deemed “too white” by some black students, yet she felt out of place at mostly white schools. Her mother is a former teacher from Louisiana, and her father is a doctor from Senegal. The family briefly relocated to Dakar, Senegal’s capital, when she was young, and when they returned to L.A., she attended a magnet high school for medicine and science.

Ms. Rae went on to Stanford University, where she majored in African and African-American studies and directed and wrote plays on the side. One day, she was procrastinating on Facebook during a particularly busy semester and decided to make a video of what it was like to be black at Stanford. That idea turned into a video series called “Dorm Diaries,” a faux-documentary in which she recruited her friends to ridicule archetypes of black students.

“Görülecek, işitilecek, tadılacak, okunacak, yazılacak, yapılacak o kadar çok şey birikiyor ki, bundan sonra hayatımın bütün bunlara yetişmeyeceğinden korkuyorum.” demiş Peyami Safa.

Ee napalım biz de hepsini öbür gün düşünmeye öteleyip ocağa bir kahve koyar, kokusuna ve tadına hayatımızı adayıp her yudumda boşvermişliğe bürünürüz. Bitince de telvesinden güzel bir maske yaparız. Bunu benden şuan duyuyorsanız çok şey kaybetmişsiniz demektir ama o telve varya o telve cilde çok iyi geliyor. Bu konuya nereden geldim bilmiyorum ama hayatta böyledir. Bambaşka yerlere gidiyorken siz kalkıp daha başka yerlere gidersiniz.
