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

More than anything, the starlet wants others to see themselves.

Culture & Entertainment

Logan Browning has starred as Samantha "Sam" White in the Netflix show Dear White People for 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 is 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.

Gabrielle Union is not here for the label stepparent. While she became a stepparent after marrying Dwyane Wade in 2014, that doesn't mean that she wants to be defined by it. The actress spoke about the dislike of that term during her appearance on Glennon Doyle's "We Can Do Hard Things" podcast.

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"

I didn't want to say that I was having bad luck. That's not something I'd ever want to speak into existence over my life. But I will say something wasn't right. I had a few coins stacked in my purse from a one-time project as well as from an ongoing one. Then I received emails from not one but two publications within days apart asking me if I'd like to contribute a few articles every week. Opportunities and money were flowing in. If you follow the law of attraction, you'd say I was vibrating on a high frequency.

Tinashe has learned a lot about her mental health while growing up in the entertainment industry. The singer/songwriter began dancing at four years old and had her first movie role at five years old.

From there, she went on to be in a girl group The Stunners and act in TV shows like Two and a Half Men. Now as an independent artist focusing solely on her music, the "All Hands on Deck" singer opened up about the struggles she faced in the industry.

My favorite time of the year is the start of the official boot season which begins during the transitional period between summer and fall. What's most exciting about the sudden drop in temperatures is stepping back into those sleek pair of boots for the first time in months. Whether zipping up oldies but goodies or investing in a new fall 2021 boot trend, this year is all about the calf boot. Specifically, this is the best option when easing your summer clothes into the appropriate fall looks.
