The Atlanta guest were able to view the  2nd episode titled, “Behind the Walls,” which reveals how the amount of prisoners incarcerated in the United States continues to rise at an alarming rate. Kamau heads to the infamous San Quentin prison to meet the men who’ve spent a lifetime behind bars, hear their stories and discover who they have become.

“This episode is my favorite of the season because I didn’t expect to go into a prison and meet so many men that are just like me, but somehow found themselves in a bad situation and now are paying the consequences for that choice,” says Bell.
