Storyline

Comic and political provocateur W. Kamau Bell hosts this CNN original documentary series in which he travels to the far corners of America to explore race-based subcultures. Using humor to soften his experiences, Bell willingly subjects himself to awkward situations -- like attending a cross-burning, hate-mongering Ku Klux Klan session -- to demonstrate "the many diverse and colorful definitions of America," CNN says. Bell also visits a gated retirement community, experiences inner-city policing, spends time with spring break revelers, speaks to prison inmates, and travels to the Last Frontier.

Fearless, inspirational, and highly necessary!
1 September 2018 | by gabrielphawkinsSee all my reviews

This show is an incredible masterpiece, featuring the crucial narratives of underrepresented and often oppressed racial groups. It dives deep into the concept of inequities in different environments and how our surroundings shape who we are. W. Kamau Bell is a visionary artist and comedian, and his show helps inspire change and inclusiveness.
