Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions have brought online the trailer for writer/director Justin Simien's Dear White People, a feature film based on his short film that went viral a few years back. Check it out in the player below!

Set at a Midwestern University that's been experiencing difficulties between its white and black populations, the movie's perspective is seen through the eyes of four very different African-Americans including shy Lionel (Tyler James Williams), who is being bullied by his white fratmates, Tessa Thompson's militant DJ Samantha White, overachiever Troy (Brandon Bell) and Teyonah Parris' Coco. Things escalate when one of the fraternities decides to throw an "African-American Party" causing even further tension.

Also starring Dennis Haysbert and Kyle Gallner, Dear White People is set for release on October 17.
