Sponsored by the Social Justice Guild at First E & Co-sponsored by Hello Racism (https://www.facebook.com/hellorace) and Georgia WAND (http://gawand.org/). Justin Simien’s Dear White People (2014) A satire about race relations and racial identity, set on a fictional Ivy League campus. Samantha White, known as Sam, is the host of a campus radio show called Dear White People and she makes all kinds of kinds of funny, intentionally provocative statements aimed at subtle and overt racism, on and off campus. Loosely inspired by a series of scandalous black-face parties at all-white fraternities, it’s full of punchy intelligence and barely concealed anger. One reviewer says “No one knows how to talk about race in America. We need to have a laugh or two as we struggle over what words to use.” The film earned nine film festival award wins (including the Special Jury Prize at Sundance, and the Independent Spirit Award for Best First Screenplay) and 22 nominations in all. Doors open 7:00 pm – film starts at 7:30 pm sharp Popcorn and refreshments available We welcome donations - $1 to $10 sliding scale No one turned away Stay for the discussion after the film led by a leader in Hello Racism and Becky Rafter of Georgia WAND.
