Chelsea Handler is on a mission to understand her whiteness better. In her new documentary, Hello Privilege, It’s Me Chelsea Handler wants to have the hard conversation with people of color and white folks about what it means to have white privilege and what she as a white lady can do to be a better person about it. It turns out the answer to that question is deep and has many layers. Handler travels the country speaking with a wide range of people on the topic of race including fellow comedians Kevin Hart, Tiffany Haddish, and W. Kamau Bell, anti-racism writer and activist Tim Wise, a Republican women’s group in Orange County, CA, college students at an open mic night, and her former high school boyfriend in New Jersey.
Hello Privilege, It’s Me Chelsea premieres on Netflix on September 13th
