In March, we reported that Sundance Film Winner Dear White People had been picked up by Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions. Now the film is set to debut in theaters nationwide October 2014.
As previously reported, Dear White People follows four Black students at an ivy league college where a riot breaks out over a popular “African-American” themed party thrown by white students and is based on filmmaker, Justin Simien’s real-life experience as an African-American student at a predominately white institution.
Dear White People features the talents of former Everybody Hates Chris star Tyler Williams along with Tessa Thompson, Teyonah Parris and Brandon Bell. I would also like to say a special shout to my friend and celebrity wardrobe stylist, Toye Adedipe, who served as the film’s Costumer Designer.
