NPR's Sunni Khalid reports on President Clinton's visit to the NAACP Annual Convention in Pittsburgh. In a speech, the President reaffirmed his commitment to racial healing, asking the venerable civil rights organization for its help. He announced a multi-million-dollar incentive plan to lure 35,000 new teachers to troubled schools in the inner city and rural areas. Reaction was warm but, among some delegates, wary. The President is expected to deliver a similar message this evening in Chicago at the National Association of Black Journalists convention.
