Silvio is a recurring character on Season One of Netflix series Dear White People. He is portrayed by D.J. Blickenstaff.


Silvio has shown to be a demanding and disciplined individual that seeks a variety of things that either sell or prove interesting in his eyes. A staff member to Winchester's Independent, he has shown to interact the most with writer Lionel Higgins, though it could be heavily implied that he had pressumed Lionel was homosexual.[1]
