Dear White People
ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
In Justin Simien’s writer-director debut, a college student named Sam gets real on the radio about the subtle, pervasive racism in the United States. “Dear white people,” Sam begins, before talking about the myriad ways white folks try to appropriate or condescend black culture, from the way they use words like “thang” to the way an acquaintance of hers is dating a black guy as an apparent act of social rebellion. But how down is Sam? Is this really her behind the mic, or is she playing a part, too?
Join us for film screenings followed by a provocative discussion about the themes. REEL Talks are free, but reservations are required.
Tickets available starting September 1, 2017.
