Still image from the film Dear White People



This campus comedy acts as magnifying glass to the world outside the classroom, sparking a conversation about race, sex, and privilege in the racial consciousness of the Obama Era. Following four African-American students at an Ivier-than-Ivy League university, director Justin Simien navigates hot-button issues of race and warring identities. Despite its title, the film is for all audiences, pairing social criticism with a reflective mirror. A charismatic cast and kinetic dialogue provide insight into the lives of four people grappling with exactly how to express their identity in a culture that touts “inclusivity.” Contains mature content. (2K DCP Presentation)
