'Dear White People' Star Logan Browning On The Legacy She Hopes To Leave Behind

Logan Browning has starred as Samantha "Sam" White in the Netflix show Dear White Peoplefor four seasons and now fans are saying goodbye to the show that pushed the envelope on race, identity and sexaulity. The show, which was originally introduced to us as a film, is about Black students at a predominantly white university who face adversity as minorities and work together to be seen and heard and change the narrative on campus.


Logan's character Sam hosts a radio show called "Dear White People" where she has difficult conversations about racism and controversies such as a blackface party that took place on campus.

Sam is smart, unapologetic, and is always down for the cause.

Unfortunately for fans of Sam and other characters, Dear White People has ended after four seasons, but they decided to end the show on a high note.

The fourth and final season is a musical, but that doesn't mean that they still haven't captured the essence of why fans loved the show in the first place. The comedy, the drama, the satire is still there and of course the struggle.

Logan and Marque Richardson, who plays Reggie, spoke with Tamron Hall on her talk show about the show's last season and the legacy it will leave behind.

Logan touched on the ability to have a show that focuses on serious topics that are also coupled with humor.

"They say you gotta get folks laughing so their mouths are open and you can feed them the medicine, but also there is something very funny about being the only one. I mean, so many people have that experience and you're kinda laughing by yourself in your head so this is kinda cool 'cause everybody gets to laugh out loud with each other."

As far as the legacy she hopes the show will leave behind, the actress said:

"If you live in a world where you don't see yourself, you feel like you don't exist and to feel like you don't exist is dangerous and terrifying. So for someone to feel like they're seen in every space is important."

Logan hasn't announced any upcoming projects as of yet, but we're sure sis is booked and busy.

Whenever I hear the church say something along the lines of, “I know God will give me [such and such] because he said that he will grant me the desires of my heart,” the first thing that comes to my mind is how unfortunate it is that church culture tends to make an Olympic sport out of editing Scripture to its own liking.

In this particular case, that resolve comes from Psalm 37:4 (NKJV); however, the entire verse says “Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.” Yeah, do the first part and then the second portion follows. Secondly, Jeremiah 17:9-10 tells us that “the heart is deceitful;” that’s because our heart is the “center of our emotions” — and emotions change all of the time.
