Dear White People is one of the hottest shows on TV right now and the mind behind it is the brilliant Justin Simien. We do a deep dive into the themes and messages of the show in which I find out that Dear White People, a show I adore, was partly inspired by my 2012 book “Who’s Afraid of Post-Blackness, What It Means To Be Black Now.” This originally aired in April.Patreon.com/toureshowInstagram @toureshowTwitter: @toure  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Justin Simien is the mind behind Dear White People, the amazing Netflix show that was previously an amazing movie of the same name. I did not know that Dear White People, a show I adore, was partly inspired by my 2011 book Who’s Afraid of Post-Blackness, What It Means To Be Black Now. We talk about that, of course, and how Corona is impacting him, and how to be successful in film and TV, and much more. Patreon.com/toureshowInstagram @toureshowTwitter: @toure Toure Show Ep 127 Host & Writer: ToureSenior Producer: Jackie GarofanoAssistant Producer: Adell ColemanEditor: Ryan WoodhallPhotographers: Chuck Marcus and Shanta CovingtonBooker: Claudia JeanThe House: DCP Entertainment  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
