Does a black president equal black power? Will Obama’s presidency create lasting change for African-Americans? Or will anything change at all? On this edition, we present a round table discussion, featuring three African-American community leaders, about how Obama’s election, and presidency, has changed their perspective on what black power is…and what it isn’t.
