(Originally broadcast May 27, 2011)

Is there a link between poverty and prison? Also, criticism of President Obama comes from unexpected quarters, prompting the question, "How should people of color hold President Obama accountable?" In our online conversation after the broadcast, we discuss the end of an era and the cultural impact of Oprah Winfrey.

Du Bois Institute, Harvard University; and Emmett G. Price, Chair, African American Studies Department, Northeastern University.
