Black Lives

The golden age of black television

Sound familiar?

In the era of #BlackLivesMatter, there's been a bumper crop of TV series offering various glimpses into black lives and culture.

With her HBO comedy "Insecure," Issa Rae became the first black woman to create and star in her own series on a premium cable channel.
