 Virtual Watch Party and Moderated Discussion of Dear White People
Thursday, July 9, 2020
7:00 - 8:30 pm
Cost:  Free

"Set against the backdrop of a predominantly white Ivy League university where racial tensions bubble just below the surface, Dear White People is a hilarious send-up of “post-racial” America that weaves together the 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 sometimes misguided 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.” 


We will be watching Season/Volume 1, Episode/Chapter 5. This episode highlights current social injustices related to police brutality within the Black community.
  Attendance is limited, so please register as soon as possible. Once you register, you will be provided with a Zoom link for the Watch Party.
