Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's former pastor is scheduled to give a keynote address at Detroit's NAACP chapter Sunday. The address is one of several public appearances by the Rev. Jeremiah Wright since his connection to Obama caused controversy last month.

Renee Montagne talks with Fredrick Harris, professor of political science at Columbia University, about the significance of Wright's address.
