WHAT: OPIRG Kingston and the Queen’s Coalition Against Racial and Ethnic Discrimination (QCRED) are hosting a pay-what-you-can (pwyc) screening of Dear White People at the Screening Room on Friday January 16 at 9:35pm! This will be the first time Dear White People is screened in Kingston.
Winner of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival’s Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent, Dear White People is a sly, provocative satire of race relations in the age of Obama. Writer/director Justin Simien follows a group of African American students as they navigate campus life and racial politics at a predominantly white college in a sharp and funny feature film debut that earned him a spot on Variety’s annual “10 Directors to Watch.”
