Dear White People (Lionsgate, 2014), the first feature from writer-director Justin Simien, is set in the uncomfortable gap between the America of Eric Elolder and the America of Michael Brown. The film's main characters are young black men and women who have benefited enormously from the changes of the past half-century but still find themselves branded by race. The most important conflicts are within the characters who struggle being a "black face in a white place." On Simien's fictional campus, as in Obama's America, even successful and affluent African Americans still bear the burden of explaining themselves to white people and defending themselves against stereotypes when all they really want is the chance to be their own complex, multifaceted human selves. "I believe in human beings, and that all human beings should be respected as such, regardless of their color." -W.E.B. Dubois
