Dear White People: Amy Goodman

Amy Goodman of Democracy Now reviews the movie and offers a list of actual black face parties that mirror the one in the film. In the 30-minute clip she interviews Justin Simien, the director on “Being a Black Face in a White Space,” and we learn his bio. At minute 6:30, he says “I entered college as Lionel and came out as Sam, but in truth, I was all of them.  In college (a black person) is pressured to be different things to different people.” Goodman also talks to actor Marque Richardson.
