On today's bloggers' roundtable, NPR's Tony Cox guides a discussion about news that singer Beyonce is set to play blues legend Etta James on the big screen, a recently released photo showing Sen. Barack Obama dressed in Somali garb, and Bill O'Reilly's comments about Michelle Obama.

Joining in are Ambra Nykol of Nykola, Patrice Elizabeth Grell Yursik of Afrobella, and Robert Redding of The Redding News Review.
