Race Roundtable -- Part 1

Today's announcement by Sen. Trent Lott (R-MS) comes after weeks of debate over whether he was fit for the position. Lott's comments at Sen. Strom Thurmond's (R-SC) birthday party set off a national debate on race. NPR gathered a group of people who work together at the Historical Society of Washington, DC to talk about the implications of Lott's remarks, and where America goes from here.
