New Hampshire has one of the smallest black populations of any state. News & Notes talks with two residents who make it their business to advocate for more diversity: Wayne Jennings, chairman and CEO of the New Hampshire Cultural Diversity Awareness Counsel, and Wanda Mitchell, vice provost and chief diversity officer at the University of New Hampshire.

They talk to Farai Chideya about what it's like to live in the Granite State.
