The federal government is requiring that all television programming be distributed digitally by early 2009. That means analog sets will soon become obsolete — a change that is expected to leave many black households behind.

Farai Chideya talks with Rev. Anthony Evans about his grassroots effort to help blacks bridge that digital divide.

Evans is president of the National Black Church Initiative, a Washington-based advocacy group.
