When I was a teenager, I dyed my hair five colors at one time. It was all different shades of red going from more orange to more purple. I thought I looked so cool.

Michelle Alexander

When we filmed the premiere episode of ‘United Shades of America,’ it was like we were turning over a rock in the woods. The KKK was not part of the national conversation.

W. Kamau Bell
I’m reading a lot of different books, but I always think I have to switch it up a little bit. It’s like food – everything in moderation, same with my books, same with my reading.
