Comedian Chelsea Handler is about to launch a new documentary on Netflix where she looks into white privilege – both her own experiences of it as well as the cultural impact. In “Hello, Privilege. It’s Me, Chelsea.” she travels the country speaking to a range of people about the subject. The documentary launches on September 13th and is the first new release since she chose to end her weekly talk show nearly two years ago.
The pleasure is all Chelsea’s. “Hello, Privilege. It’s Me, Chelsea” follows comedian Chelsea Handler as she confronts and explores her personal and cultural impacts around white privilege. Handler travels around 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.
