The Cassandra Voss Center at St. Norbert College will present a screening and discussion of the independent film "Dear White People" on Tuesday, Nov. 4. The event will take place at Marcus Bay Park Cinema, 755 Willard Drive, Green Bay. The film will begin at 7 p.m., with facilitated discussion to follow from 9 to 9:30 p.m.

Tickets for the showing on Nov. 4 are specially priced $5 and can either be purchased at the door or pre-ordered online at http://www.marcustheatres.com. (Pre-ordering is strongly recommended.) Free buses for the first 100 students attending the event will depart from the Cassandra Voss Center on the St. Norbert College campus at 6:15; those traveling to the theater on their own are encouraged to arrive by 6:30 p.m.

Written and directed by Justin Simien, "Dear White People" follows a group of African-American students as they navigate campus life and racial politics at a fictional, predominantly white Ivy League college. The film's official website describes it as "a satire about being a black face in a white place." The film won the 2014 Sundance Film Festival's Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent. "Dear White People" is currently playing in limited release, and opened at Marcus Bay Park Cinema on Oct. 31.
