Actress, producer, and screenwriter Lena Waithe was the first black woman to win an Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for Netflix’s Master of None. Her award-winning episode, Thanksgiving, was a poignant take on Waithe’s own experience coming out to her mother. Now, the Out100 Artist of the Year is turning her creative energies toward three projects: The Chi, written by Waithe and produced by Common; a comedy called Twenties with TBS; and a film, Queen Slim, starring Daniel Kaluuya of Get Out fame.
