Basic Black: The Occupy Movement; The Rise of Herman Cain

(Originally broadcast October 28, 2011)  Our season premiere features a conversation on the growing Occupy Movement and how people of color are making their voice heard, either by joining the larger movement or its off-shoot, Occupy The Hood.

We'll also look at Herman Cain's presidential bid. What accounts for his surge in the polls, and rising popularity among conservatives?

Tonight's panel: Latoyia Edwards, anchor, New England Cable News; Kim McLarin, assistant professor of writing, literature and publishing, Emerson College; Phillip Martin, senior investigative reporter, 89.7 WGBH Radio; Stephanie Robinson, lecturer at Harvard Law School and CEO of The Jamestown Project; and Peniel Joseph, professor of history, Tufts University.
