Madison Shockley III Asks, “Where is the Love?”

A couple of years ago, I became overly consumed with the web series Awkward Black Girl. All it took was watching one episode and it was a done deal – I was an instant fan.   The series followed the awkward life of J, played by comedic super genius Issa Rae.   I enjoyed the quirkiness…
