Race and Jury Selection

In Pittsburgh, a decision by a trial judge to put a murder trial on hold until blacks make up at least 10 percent of the jury pool has sparked a debate about how people of color are picked for juries. NPR's Tavis Smiley talks with Kim Crenshaw, professor of law at UCLA and Columbia University, and Nancy King, professor of law at Vanderbilt University.
