Summer is right around the corner, but you might want to start prepping to go back to school. Waithe was a producer on the 2014 film that set up the premise for the Netflix adaptation, but now she'll be playing "bragadocious MC" P Ninny, host of Dear White People's Love & Hip Hop spoof Trap House Tricks.
The upcoming installment of the hit streaming series will continue to follow the experiences of students of color attending an elite, predominantly white Ivy League university. And if the latest teaser is any indication, the show has its fair share of topics to "break down", including (but certainly not limited to) cultural appropriation, sex and gender norms, fake news, and "Oppression ft". The much-anticipated Dear White People Vol. 2 launches Friday, May 4th, everywhere Netflix is available. 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. Yvette Lee Bowser serves as co-showrunner and executive producer, while Stephanie Allain and Julia Lebedev executive produce. Sam (Logan Browning) is back behind the mic, Reggie (Marque Richardson) and Gabe (John Patrick Amedori) are back in discussions of race on campus, Lionel (DeRon Horton) may have found himself a boyfriend, and Troy (Brandon P. Bell) has his shirt off again. Season 1 of Dear White People is now streaming on Netflix.
