REVOLT x Netflix bring exclusive 'Dear White People' screenings to Syracuse University & UC Berkeley

  /  04.27.2017

It’s been nearly a year since Netflix announced that it would be developing its own series based on the 2014 indie dramedy Dear White People. And tomorrow (April 28), the 10 episodes will hit the streaming service for your viewing pleasure.

In anticipation of the release of the show, which takes a satirical look at diversity and racial tensions experienced by black undergrads at a predominately-white Ivy League school, REVOLT TV hosted exclusive on-campus screenings at Syracuse University and UC Berkeley where we got reactions from the students themselves.

“I love that they’re using comedy to move forward a conversation that is deeper than that,” one woman at Syracuse said, while another man admitted, “I feel a little bit of a connection to some of these characters.

At UC Berkeley, a man commended the show’s willingness to tackle taboo subjects, saying, “When you feel uncomfortable, that’s when you know that people have to start talking about it.” Another woman applauded the sitcom’s timely significance, adding, “I thought the show was extremely socially relevant.”
