Roundtable: Assessing The State Of The Black World

A "who's who" of black elected officials, educators, and musicians are meeting in New Orleans this week for the "State of the Black World Conference."

Plus, our bloggers share how people in their parts of the country are dealing with the sagging economy, and they weigh in on the Internet uproar over Bravo's The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

On today's bloggers' roundtable, Farai Chideya talks with Marc Lamont Hill; Felicia Harvey of Black Politics on the Web; and Desmond Burton of Afro Nerd.
