The Root Recommends: 'The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl'

Check out the hilarious Web series about a socially handicapped black woman and her friends.


ColorLines recently pointed us in the direction of The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl -- ABG for short -- about a socially handicapped black woman who finds herself in hilarious situations.

The star and creator, Issa Rae, sets her series in various Los Angeles locales, but the best moments take place in the main character's office. Watch and laugh.

Previous recommendation: 'How Cancer Crossed the Color Line.'
