Julian Bond, NAACP President

As the NAACP celebrates its 99th annual convention, News & Notes has learned there may be a conflict in the transfer of power to NAACP president-elect Ben Jealous.

Jealous, 35, has not yet signed his employment contract.

For more, Farai Chideya speaks with Julian Bond, chairman of the NAACP. Bond says he's "confident that by September, [Jealous] will be working for us."

The two also talk about Obama's address to the group and the influence of so-called "hip hop politics."
