Anika Noni Rose: 'Caroline or Change'

Anika Noni Rose just won a Tony award for her work in the Broadway musical Caroline, or Change — the dramatic story of an African-American maid trying to raise her family in 1963 Louisiana. Rose plays her head-strong daughter, and she recently had a conversation with NPR's Allison Keyes about that role.
