Netflix is just days away from rolling out its next original series, Dear White People, and the cast and crew have a message for viewers: stay woke.
The show is based on the award-winning film by Justin Simien and takes place at Winchester University, a fictional college campus, and forces each character to answer the question, “Who ARE you?”
Peep the official synopsis:
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 picks 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.
