“We need to do here what they did in Germany.” “What!?” “I mean educating kids about the nation’s horrible past part. Not the concentration camp part.” “Oh, cause I was about to say.” After the success of his directorial debut Dear White People, writer-director Justin Simien has adapted the movie to a new Netflix series.
“Dear White People here’s a list of acceptable Halloween costumes: pirates; slutty nurse; any of our first 43 Presidents. Top of the list of unacceptable costumes: me.” America needs a voice of reason. As with the film, the 10-episode ‘Dear White People’ series follows a diverse group of students at a predominantly white Ivy League college, who navigate various forms of racial and other types of discrimination.
The Date Announcement teaser features a direct take down of problematic Halloween costumes. Starring Antoinette Robertson, Brandon P Bell, and Logan Browning the series explores ideas of race and friendship without preaching. ‘Dear White People’ premieres April 28, 2017 on Netflix.
