In honor of JUNETEENTH, the cast of Dear White People have announced the Season Three return of the series on Netflix beginning August 2.
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 — which picked up where the acclaimed 2014 film by the same name left off – follows a group of Winchester University’s 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.
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). The show is created, executive produced, directed and written by Justin Simien.
Enjoy the cast below as they discuss whether “Grits” should be eaten with salt or sugar. Considering that I am true southerner, I only eat my grits with butter, salt and cheese.
Anything else…and I mean anything…would be uncivilized!
