Actress LOGAN BROWNING portrays lead character SAMANTHA WHITE in upcoming NETFLIX series DEAR WHITE PEOPLE, and she covers the new issue of ROLLING OUT Magazine!!!

Here are some interview interludes:

On being thankful for sacrifices made by family members that helped to contribute to her success:

“I think it’s important for people to share that, and not pretend they got some place on their own. My parents, my siblings, and my relatives have made more sacrifices for me than I have for myself, if I’m being honest.”

On pursuing acting classes and theater training:

“We have so many resources at our fingertips now. There’s almost no excuse for character development being weak. I love talking to creators of shows. I always kind of look to them because it is their vision and their voice.”

On being a role model and seeking responsible acting roles:


“I feel like maybe that wasn’t in my mind before, but now I feel like I’m super conscious of what I say yes and no to. Even though you want to believe that anything can be art, you also have to think about how it’s all media. … Art inspires how we look at each other, and I don’t want to be a contributing factor to negative images or stereotypes …

“You have someone like Naomi Harris in Moonlight, who at first wasn’t sure she wanted to play this drug addicted mother because she felt it was stereotypical until Barry Jenkins explained, ‘You are playing my mom.’ There is a human, she exists, someone loved her, and her story needs to be told. That’s different to me. It’s not just some cookie-cutter role for people to feel sorry for Black people. It’s a beautiful person’s story being shared — so that, I can rock with.” 
On growing up in CLAYTON COUNTY, GA:
“It’s funny I always said Atlanta, but really I didn’t grow up in Atlanta. I grew up on the southside. My mom and most of my friends still live there, and I go back a lot, I now feel even more responsible and conscious about saying I grew up in Clayton County because in Atlanta sometimes Clayton County doesn’t have the best reputation for whatever reason. … So many artists have come from that Clayton County and Fayette County area and we all just say Atlanta. With all the industry going to Atlanta, it’s nice to say, ‘Actually, I’m from this specific part that’s been overlooked.’ ”
On being able to identify ordinary women doing extraordinary things as among her heroes:
“I wish we all glorified more women who are just doing kickass things in their regular lives as the heroes,” said Browning. “I want to do more of this, personally, as I have so many friends who are doing amazing things but I’m the one, because I’m on a TV show, who is getting the publicity. I look at them as my heroes.”
