WHO IS BLACK IN AMERICA? – Airs Sunday 8:00PM – 9:00PM and 11:00PM (Monday 2:00AM)
For her fifth exploration of African-American history, issues, and culture, CNN anchor and special correspondent Soledad O’Brien explores interpretations of race and identity for African Americans.  The 2010 U.S. Census reported 15 percent of new marriages are interracial, and one in seven American newborns are of mixed race, yet racial identity is often complicated by perspectives of community acceptance.  O’Brien follows the journeys of two high school seniors as they explore their own senses of racial identity, expressing their feelings through a spoken word workshop in Philadelphia.  O’Brien also interviews Drexel University professor Yaba Blay, spoken word artist Perry Vision DiVirgilio, anti-racism activist and author Tim Wise, and writer, speaker, and image activist Michaela Angela Davis about the historical roots of how race is often defined in America, the prejudicial concept of colorism, and discusses their reflections on categorizing people by race, and racial identity.

I really enjoy the Saturday edition of The Situation Room considering it highlights some important interviews I may have missed. I wonder why the studio still has patriotic decorations? The election is over.

The Washington camera crew for The Situation Room need to be fired. If you look at the Washington camera crew for State of the Union or Reliable Sources, they do a great job. I'm majoring in photography, so details matter. The camera angle for the Situation Room is bad because the cameraman tends to angle the camera from the ground, looking upward, mainly when Wolf is doing a a table interview. Half of the screen shot shows the studio ceiling. Camera needs to aim higher, looking down. If you look at State of the Union or Reliable Sources, they perfectly detail every camera angle. @ANON10:35---I too wonder why the studio is still patriotically decorated.
