Justin Simien–I Created Dear White People

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.
