In Part 2 of our conversation about the film Dear White People KC, Chris, Leisha, Toria and The Other Chris are joined by actor Brandon P. Bell, who plays Troy Fairbanks in the film. We discuss attending predominately white institutons (PWIs), white privilege (surrounding the character Curt), economics, quintessential blackness, and “ethinc themed parties”. Brandon shares his experience with the film, including how he landed the role of Troy and what is was like playing this character.
