The Re-emergence of Rev. Jeremiah Wright

Hosted by

Jeremiah Wright breaks his silence tonight on his controversial comments about race in America, in a PBS interview with Bill Moyers. Barack Obama's former pastor says that his comments about race were taken out of context. This weekend, in Detroit, he'll be speaking to the NAACP.  Why is Wright speaking up now? With Obama facing questions about his electability, what impact will Wright's comments have on the senator's campaign? Charles Henry, professor of African American Studies at the University of California-Berkeley, is author of Long Overdue: The Politics of Racial Reparations.
