Chicago native, Lena Waithe is making true history in the Hollywood film industry. Most recently, her new series, “The Chi”, premiered on Showtime. Rapper, Common and Elwood Reid helped as co-executive producers on this groundbreaking project. The series touch bases on the ongoing violence that occur in the neighborhoods of South Side Chicago. Waithe recently won an Emmy award for Outstanding Writing for Comedy Series, “Master of None”. Which in specific episodes she addresses her sexuality for women, including the LBGT Community. I personally recommend this series simply because it addresses the sexuality of African Americans in the urban communities.
