Denzel Washington's latest movie, The Great Debaters, is stirring up controversy about how much it actually sticks to the historical record. Plus, members of the Congressional Black Caucus are seeking a pardon for the Jena 6.

Our panel of bloggers debate that and more; they include Casey Lartigue of The Casey Lartigue Show!, Jozen Cummings of Broke Thoughts, and Mark Anthony Neal of Critical Noir.
