Each week, Stanford Under the Stars: Movie Nights at Frost brings a selection of movies featuring actors who attended Stanford or various Stanford and Northern California filming locations. Though Golden Globe and Emmy-nominated actress Issa Rae (‘07) studied African American studies and political science, she found ways to engage with storytelling and acting, from her mockumentary “Dorm Diaries” about life in the Ujamaa residence to stage productions like the Motown adaptation of Grease. Following graduation, Rae went on to produce and act in shows such as The Mis-Adventures of an Awkward Black Girl and HBO’s Insecure and numerous movies including The Hate U Give (2018), Little (2019), The Lovebirds (2020), and The Photograph (2020).

Jordan will now need to rely on April more than ever––if April is willing to stop treating Jordan like a 13-year-old child who has an attitude problem.
