Join us for a series of small group discussion amongst like-minded Healing Artists of color. At this month's Watch & Talk, we'll watch "Insecure" and discuss social and racial issues that relate to the contemporary black experience. Insecure is an HBO original comedy series, created by Issa Rae and Larry Wilmore, which is partially based on Rae's widely lauded web series Awkward Black Girl.
The eight-episode first season explores the black female experience from the perspective of the two female protagonists, Issa (Issa Rae) and Molly (Yvonne Orji). Career and relationship experiences are explored. Issa works at a non-profit that benefits middle-school students of color. Issa has a long-term relationship with Lawrence (Jay Ellis). Molly is a successful corporate attorney who has career success but difficulty with dating men. The half-hour series explores social and racial issues that relate to the contemporary black experience.
