Reginald "Reggie" Green is an attending student at Winchester University and an activist in the Black Student Union. He is a supporting character in the indie film Dear White People and a major character in the Netflix adaption series of the same name, portrayed by Marque Richardson.


Reggie Green grew up inspired by his father, a war veteran and former Black Panther. Passionate and intelligent, he presents himself as a visionary for his friends at Armstrong-Parker. During his rite to begin a movement at Winchester University to acknowledge racism on campus, Reggie sought the help of media student Samantha White, unaware of her relationship status at the time.

Upon the rough introduction one night with Gabe Mitchell, Reggie gradually distanced himself from Sam and was heavily supported by Joelle Brooks. When his life was threatened by an officer for not showing his ID card, he withdrew from interacting with friends, venting his emotions in poetry.


House ElectionEdit

Reggie sat alongside Sam and other Black Student Union members in the auditorium, listening as Troy Fairbanks gave his speech on-stage in disinterest. Later, while Sam gave her speech about keeping A-P House predominantly black. When the time to vote came, Reggie and other students placed their votes, a bot driving many towards Sam. After it is announced by Martin of the winner for Head of House, Reggie congratulated her excitingly.[1]

Walking back to the dormitory, Reggie stood outside his door, confessing to Sam that he felt pained, watching as she was with Gabe. Ultimately, he entered his room, Sam following behind him; as the two began to become intimate, a text message briefly stopped them before Reggie and Sam continued, undressing and engaging in sex.[3]

Returning to his dormitory, Reggie makes comments on the smell of hot pockets that filled the room as well as rock music Clifton blared through his laptop. Taking a beer from the fridge, he was reminded that they had a rule, to which he replied that Clifton's side of the room was alcohol-free. Despite lunging in silence, Reggie had been asked about his condition by his roommate and informed that he had an ear to speak to about his trauma. Eventually, he is reminded to report to therapy.

During the therapy session, he was questioned about his mental condition.[5]
