Justin Simien is Filling His Own Cup

Ten years after releasing a concept trailer that would go viral and propel his career, Dear White People creator Justin Simien is learning to take a step back and celebrate his wins. Already close friends, Justin and Ashley reflect on their personal and professional growth since the show ended and revisit the risks that led to their success. The fearless visionary unpacks the pressures of breaking ground as a Black creative and touches on the discipline necessary to create opportunities for himself and the next generation of Black artists. With all his success, Justin says he no longer chases accolades for validation. Instead, he’s committed to resting in the truth that only he “can keep his cup filled.”
