Dear White People (2014)

  • Movie

Samantha White is starting a movement, and it all begins with her radio show, Dear White People.

As a biracial college student at a predominantly white Ivy League school, White, played by Logan Browning, uses her radio show to address racial tensions on campus that often go unaddressed. The decision then catapults her to spokeswoman status for black student groups — whether she’s ready for it or not.

Dear White People hits Netflix on Friday, April 28.
