“I don’t need an Emmy to tell me to go to work. I’m bullets.”

~Lena Waithe (Vanity Fair)

Brief excerpt from cover story written by Jacqueline Woodson:

"Growing up, I leaned into books, finding small parts of myself in the writings of Mildred Taylor, Audre Lorde, Virginia Hamilton, and Walter Dean Myers. Lena, meanwhile, found her mentors on the screen in the comedy writing of Susan Fales-Hill (A Different World, Suddenly Susan), Yvette Lee Bowser (Living Single, Lush Life, Black-ish), and Mara Brock Akil (Moesha, Girlfriends, Being Mary Jane). “They didn’t get their shine,” she says of these early black women in comedy. “They were constantly banging on the doors.” In contrast, she says, “I rolled up and all I had to do was tip it and walk through.”
