The series tells the story of a diverse group of black students experiencing campus life at a fictional Ivy League university dominated by their white peers. "Having a black vibrator does not count as an interracial relationship", she jokes on-air early in the trailer. For those interested in the series and want to get a taste of what it may be like, the film version of Dear White People is now available to watch on Amazon and Netflix.
Despite the anger delivered toward Justin Simien's highly anticipated Netflix show, Dear White People, you can not stop the shining.
Much of the film's cast has changed from the series, but Simien, who wrote and directed the film, remained onboard and wrote every episode. The crowd-funded comedy won the Sundance Film Festival's U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent. Picking up right where the film left off, actors Tessa Thompson and Tyler James Williams are replaced by Logan Browning and DeRon Horton, while Brandon Bell and Marque Richardson return as Troy Fairbanks and Reggie Green, respectively.
Dear White People, the movie, is not streaming on Netflix any longer. Check out the show's first full trailer above and poster above.
