In the wake of Jesse Jackson's trip to Mexico City — where he had strong words for Mexican President Vicente Fox after recent controversial comments about black Americans — Ed Gordon discusses the relevance of modern leadership in the African-American community. He is joined by Robert Smith, professor of political science at San Francisco State University and the author of We Have No Leaders: African-Americans in the Post-Civil Rights Era and political analyst and commentator Earl Ofari Hutchinson.
