Cultural appropriation. Sex and gender norms. Fake news. The Sunken Place. Salty grits?!
Netflix’s critically-acclaimed comedy Dear White People returns this spring to go in on all of this — and more! The much-anticipated Dear White People Vol. 2 launches Friday, May 4th, everywhere Netflix is available.
About Dear White People
Set against the backdrop of a predominantly white Ivy League university where racial tensions bubble just below the surface, Dear White People is a send-up of the now post “post-racial” America that weaves together a universal story of finding one’s own identity and forging a wholly unique path. The satirical series — based on the acclaimed 2014 film by the same name – continues to follow a group of Winchester University students of color as they navigate a diverse landscape of social injustice, cultural bias, political correctness (or lack thereof) and activism in the millennial age. Through an absurdist lens, Dear White People utilizes biting irony, self-deprecation and sometimes brutal honesty to hold up a mirror to the issues plaguing society today, all the while leading with laughter.
From creator, executive producer, director, writer and co-showrunner Justin Simien, Dear White People stars Logan Browning (Sam), Brandon P. Bell (Troy), Antoinette Robertson (Coco), DeRon Horton (Lionel), John Patrick Amedori (Gabe), Ashley Blaine Featherson (Joelle) and Marque Richardson (Reggie). Yvette Lee Bowser serves as co-showrunner and executive producer, while Stephanie Allain and Julia Lebedev executive produce.
Dear White People is produced by Lionsgate for Netflix.”
