"Mara Brock Akil (@maraakil) has been eliciting enthusiastic reactions from women — especially black women — for more than a decade. As a TV writer and producer, she tries to deliver portrayals of black women that are subtle and complex, stories that hit a little closer to home. Her BET show #BeingMaryJane explores what it's like to have reached the late 30s and early 40s and still not quite have it all together. But at the end of the third season, @maraakil will step down to embark on a multiyear arrangement with @warnerbrostv. "The Warner Bros. deal is going to allow for me to keep painting pictures in more places," @maraakil said. @alexwelshphoto took this #portrait while on #nytassignment." By nytimes on Instagram.
