United Shades of America, a new CNN Original Series hosted by W. Kamau Bell, 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. Always incisive but never offensive, the eight-part docuseries takes Kamau from the far corners of Alaska to Florida's retirement homes to America's most dangerous prison. Each hour-long episode strives to show the United States is not built upon just one, but many diverse and colorful definitions of America. 

United Shades of America is produced by Objective/All3Media and will premiere on CNN on April 24th, 2016.
