In celebration of Netflix’s new original series, DEAR WHITE PEOPLE, David Banner hosted and moderated an advance screening and Q&A Discussion with creator/director Justin Simien and cast members Logan Browning, Marque Richardson and John Patrick Amedori for Atlanta area college students on Thursday, April 20th at The Gathering Spot.
Set among a diverse group of students as they navigate a predominantly white Ivy League college where racial tensions are often swept under the rug, Dear White People is a send up of “post-racial” America that weaves a universal story about forging one’s own unique path.
DEAR WHITE PEOPLE, a Netflix original series, begins streaming on Friday, April 28, 2017.
Shared my thoughts about #DearWhitePeople with @revolttv tonight. You can't really hear me, but I was pointing out the various types of African Americans represented in the film (which is now a TV series on #Netflix). I attended a predominately black college, but we were ALL different. There's the pro-black type ✊🏾, the rich black kid 💅🏽, the black kids who grew up around whites who spoke "proper" 👄, the stereotypical extra urban ones 👊🏾…so many. DWP leaves the dialogue wide open about who we are. Justly titled, "Dear White People: Bet You Think This Show Is About You." Brilliant title. The rest of my 2 cents and pics from the Q&A with the cast and writer coming soon. Hit my InstaStory! 🎥💻 @alliedimatl
