Issa Rae Celebrates Black History Month With the 'Insecure' Cast

Issa Rae has created some Black History Month traditions with the Insecure cast!

The 33-year-old actress took part in a panel as part of Macy’s Celebrates Black History Month series on Saturday (February 10) at Macy’s Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza in Los Angeles.

During the discussion, Issa opened up about how she honors the month with the Insecure cast.

“We do something every year. The first year, we made everybody in the room share an unknown black-history fact. And then the second year, we made people dress up as like an unknown black-history person and tell the story, do a little presentation,” Issa explained.

She added, “This year, we’re switching it up, and it’s going to get a little dangerous in the room, because not everybody is black but we’re doing made-up black facts. Some people are worried, but we’re family, so we’ll see what happens. And, you know, this may end the room.”

FYI: Issa is wearing Swarovski earrings and an Elizabeth and James dress from Shopbop.
