"I want this to start conversations, this is a show that people can wake up in the morning and binge watch with your friends and go to brunch and talk about it," said cast member Ashely Blaine Festherson.

If you missed the SXSW world premiere of Dear White People, which took place at the ZACH Theater on Monday, March 13, you can now watch the series on Netflix.

Based on the critically-acclaimed 2014 film by the same name, Dear White People is a send-up of the now post “post-racial” America that weaves together a universal story of finding one’s own identity, as told from a biting millennial point of view. Cast: Logan Browning, Brandon P. Bell, Antoinette Robertson, DeRon Horton, John Patrick Amedori.
