Dear White People‘s main cast includes Logan Browning (who portrays Samantha White), Antoinette Robertson (Colandrea ‘Coco’ Conners) and John Patrick Amedori (Gabe Mitchell).

Brown appeared as Paul in the 2020 rom-com The Thing About Harry alongside Jake Borelli, having also featured as himself in a number of reality TV shows such as Dancing With The Stars, Lip Sync Battle and Nailed It!.

An official description of Dear White People reads: “Students of colour navigate the daily slights and slippery politics of life at an Ivy League college that’s not nearly as ‘post-racial’ as it thinks.”

Over the summer the series featured in a Netflix-curated collection of films and TV shows to educate viewers on racial injustice and Blackness in the US.

Titled ‘More Than A Moment’, the list arrived with the statement: “Black lives matter. Learn more about racial injustice and the Black experience in America with this collection of films, series and documentaries.”
