Dear White People's critically-acclaimed Season 2 serves as an indictment of the alt-right and cyber trolls in 2018.
In recognition of this, Shadow & Act recently sat down with Dear White People's creator Justin Simien and stars Logan Browning, Ashley Blaine Featherson, Marque Richardson, John Patrick Amedori, Antoinette Robertson, Brandon P. Bell and DeRon Horton at a Netflix venue in Los Angeles to play a game of Real News vs. Fake News.
Discussions turned into debates and things got lively. Check out the video below!
The description of the show's second season reads, “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 -- based on the acclaimed 2014 film by the same name – continues to follow a group of Winchester University 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."
Our review at Shadow and Act states: “Exceedingly more arresting than the first season, Volume 2 of Dear White People proves the series not only has deep roots, its outstanding cast, writers and crew are more than capable of telling our stories for many seasons to come.
Dear White People Season 2 is streaming on Netflix now.
