Lionsgate debuted the trailer for Dear White People, an upcoming American satire drama film written and directed by Justin Simien.

It stars Tyler James Williams, Tessa Thompson, Teyonah Parris, Brandon P Bell, Kyle Gallner, Brittany Curran, Marque Richardson and Dennis Haysbert.

Plot:
“It follows the stories of four black students at an Ivy League college where a riot breaks out over a popular “African American” themed party thrown by white students.

With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film will explore racial identity in “post-racial” America while weaving a universal story of forging one’s unique path in the world.”

Dear White People is set to release on October 17, 2014.
