Season 2 of Kamau's Emmy-nominated CNN Original Series, United Shades of America, follows the comedian as he explores racial subcultures and other micro-societies across the country.

Kamau uses comedy to start a conversation in each episode about race and to delve into how our differences unite and divide us. The eight-part second season of the docuseries takes Kamau from Chicago's Southside to the Standing Rock Reservation to the Appalachia. Each hour-long episode strives to show the United States is not built upon just one, but many diverse and colorful definitions of America. And also to show us that we can't take that for granted. 

United Shades of America is produced by Objective/All3Media/Main Event. The Second Season premiered on CNN on April 30th, 2017. New episodes air on Sunday nights, 10 pm EST.
