The groundbreaking Sikh episode of CNN’s United Shades of America with W. Kamau Bell re-airs Sunday, May 13th. If you know friends and family who have not watched, the episode will be back on CNN at 11 pm ET, 10 pm CT, 8pm PT.

The original May 6th airing of United Shades of America: Sikhs in America ranked #1 in cable news in the key adult demographic of 25-54. The landmark episode exclusively focusing on the Sikh experience also had the highest reach across cable news in the 10pm ET time period (among 25-54), topping the competition by double digits.

“The response to the episode across the nation has been resoundingly positive, and we are thrilled to know that this groundbreaking television moment is immediately making an impact,” said Executive Director, Satjeet Kaur. “Our next step is to develop the tools to use this episode to deepen educational impact with employers and educators across the country.”

The Sikh Coalition spent six months supporting United Shades of America producers with interview research, background resource material and B-roll footage. In recent weeks, the Sikh Coalition has also worked with W. Kamau Bell and CNN to further amplify impact.
