The teaser trailer for Netflix’s highly-anticipated “Dear White People” series has finally been released. Like the 2014 film, “Dear White People” follows a group of diverse students who navigate life at a predominantly white Ivy League university. “Powers” actress Logan Browning plays lead character Samantha White in the series, taking over the role played by Tessa Thompson in the movie.
At a Netflix event on Wednesday, Simien said the show is not necessarily about pointing a finger at white people, but about presenting a new perspective on the experiences of young people of color.
“It also allows people of color to see themselves and see their humanity,” Simien explained.
“In a lot of ways that’s a big mission for ‘Dear White People.’ These are people that happen to people of color that have weird shit going on just like everybody.”
The series will premiere on Netflix on April 28, 2017, Watch the trailer below
