A new satire called "Dear White People" is currently in production in Minneapolis. It follows the story of four black students at an Ivy League college where a riot breaks out over a popular "African American" themed party that’s thrown by a group of white students.

"With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film will explore racial identity in ‘post-racial’ America while weaving a universal story of forging one’s unique path in the world," writes Justin Simien, the show’s writer, director, and producer.

This recently released behind-the-scenes video gives viewers a taste of what’s to come, and includes a few shots of your favorite Awkward Black Girl Issa Rae.
