Sam White is a mixed race film major at Winchester University; a prestigious and predominantly white Ivy League school. With her sharp and witty radio show Dear White People and her self-published book entitled Ebony and Ivy, Sam causes a stir among the administration and student body, calling out racist micro-aggressions on campus. When Sam wins the election for head of house of the all black house on campus, tensions rise. When a white student and son of the schools president, and his club come up with a black face theme for their annual party in response to Sam’s activism, tensions overflow. All at once everyone finds themselves on different sides of a race war fighting each other and themselves.
