Next week, the University of Kentucky's Martin Luther King Center will host a screening of Dear White People, a 2014 film that follows several African-American students and how they fit in at a mostly white university.  For this week's UK Perspectives, Chase Cavanaugh sat down with the center's director, Kahlil Baker, to discuss the movie and how it touches on race. 

UPDATE:  Due to inclement weather, the screening and discussion of Dear White People has been postponed.  The Late Night Film Series says it will work out a new date as soon as possible.   

The screening will take place on Tuesday, February 17th at 6:30 PM in UK's Memorial Hall.  Following the screening, there will be a discussion with the movie's director, Justin Simien.  

Chase Cavanaugh first got on the air as a volunteer reader for Central Kentucky Radio Eye, a local news service for the visually impaired. He began reporting for WUKY in February 2012, after receiving his Master’s degree from the University of Kentucky’s Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce.
