Hosted by Kamau Bell

Kamau travels to Lincoln University in Pennsylvania, the first HBCU to award diplomas, to answer the question about black colleges and their importance. While there, he learns about the art of stepping.  He also sits down with CNN frat brother Marc Lamont Hill to discuss the necessary state of HBCU’s and how the future is dependent on giving back to these unique institutions.

Next, he travels to Atlanta to find out about the “Morehouse Man” and meets a former classmate of Dr. Martin Luther King.  After Morehouse, he visits the all-women’s college Spelman who make strides in representing the LGBTQ community. He finishes his collegiate journey at the almost bankrupt but still open Morris Brown College, and sits down with fellow CNN personality, Angela Rye, who explains what schools need.
