April 20, 2009 – Hour 2

This hour we speak with Gwen Ifill, moderator and managing editor for Washington Week and senior correspondent for The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer. Her latest book is The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama. This book examines the rising generation of Black political leaders, such as Mayor of Washington D.C. Adrian Fenty and Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick. Ifill explores the ways in which these young Black politicians could change American politics and significantly transform the black political establishment.
