United Shades of America follows comedian and political provocateur W. Kamau Bell as he explores communities across America to understand the unique challenges they face.
W. Kamau Bell heads to South Florida, home of the largest number of Venezuelans in the United States. He meets with newly arrived Venezuelans as well as established Venezuelan-Americans in the community to better try to understand the complicated crisis that’s forcibly displaced millions of Venezuelans from their homes, many of them now seeking asylum and refuge in Miami-Dade.
