The creator of an award-winning web series, “Awkward Black Girl,” Rae uses her show to portray a comical upbringing as an African American in mostly white Potomoc, Maryland. When her family moved to a more diverse city, Rae said she was constantly bullied for “acting too white.” Today, she is working on an HBO comedy series, “Non-Prophet,” to further document her awkward experiences.
