During the Democratic primary process, Hillary Clinton was the overwhelming favorite candidate among Latinos. Now that she's out of contention, will their support shift to Barack Obama?

We take a closer look at black-Latino relations in the U.S., with a focus on Barack Obama's pursuit of the White House.

Joining in are Mark Lopez, associate director of the Pew Hispanic Center; Lydia Camarillo, vice president of the Southwest Voter Registration and Education Project; and Oscar Garza, editor in chief of Tu Ciudad, a Los Angeles lifestyle magazine dedicated to Latinos.
