Set against the backdrop of a predominantly White Ivy League university where racial tensions bubble just below the surface, Netflix’s Dear White People is a send-up of the now post-“post-racial” America and what that really means for young people of color.
During the Season Two premiere, returning stars including Logan Browning, Brandon P. Bell, DeRon Horton and newbie, Lena Waithe, gathered to pose and party in celebration of the series’ success. Check out photos from the Los Angeles red carpet affair below.
