Issa Rae Announced A Season 2 Premiere Date For ‘Insecure’

Awkward. Black. Women. Unite.

Issa Rae announced Tuesday afternoon on Twitter that season two of her series “Insecure” will be making a return to HBO on July 23. 

When the show took a hiatus from last November, fans were left with a ton of questions:

Will I still be forced to declare #TeamLawrence or #TeamIssa? Was Lawrence just trying to get his groove back with the chick from the bank or will she be more than a jump-off? Is Molly going to get her life?

Issa didn’t answer any of these questions in the video, but she did confirm the return date (and that co-star Jay Ellis continues to look good).

“It’s about get hot this summer…hot,” she said. “July 23 tell your friends, tell your family, tell your enemies to watch ‘Insecure’ on HBO. We’re coming back happier, stronger, better than ever.”

Get Janet Mock’s And Issa Rae’s Books For Free In Honor Of Women’s Marches

Attention, everyone in the continental U.S.!

Atria Books announced on Friday that it would be offering seven eBooks as free downloads during the weekend of President Donald Trump’s inauguration. No, the free books are not meant as a tribute to our new leader. They are meant to celebrate the various Women’s Marches taking places across the country.

“The seven titles are a collection of books that will inspire and empower women,” Atria, about to celebrate its 15th anniversary, explained in a press release. “All are stories of strong women overcoming adversity, taking second chances, and figuring out their place in the world.”

The free eBooks include:

  • Britt-Marie Was Here by Fredrik Backman

  • House of the Spirits by Isabel Allende

  • Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl by Issa Rae

  • Girl Who Escaped ISIS by Farida Khalaf

  • Things I Should Have Told My Daughter by Pearl Cleage

  • Niña Alemana (The German Girl Spanish Edition) by Armando Lucas Correa

  • Redefining Realness by Janet Mock.

Judith Curr, president and publisher of Atria Publishing Group, explained that the free downloads will “honor everyone marching and those who can’t participate.” She added: 

“[W]e’re giving these ebooks away as a gift because we feel they embody the spirit of the weekend. For those who might be taking public transportation any one of these titles is a reward and a wonderful way to spend some time with strong women in the fiction and non-fiction world.”

The above titles will be available to download ― one title per customer in the continental U.S., while supplies last ― from Friday, Jan. 20, through Saturday, Jan. 21. 

Oregon bookstore Broadway Books also opted for solidarity on Jan. 20 by handing out free copies of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s We Should All Be Feminists. For those in Washington, D.C., Sankofa Bookstore and Cafe has its own literary event planned, too.

Atria is an imprint of Simon & Schuster, the same publishing house that’s found itself at the center of a book world controversy due to its decision to ink a $ 250,000 deal with “alt-right” icon Milo Yiannopoulos

If this news makes you queasy, you’re not alone. But know that titles like Redefining Realness and Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl are certainly worth reading.
