The election of Barack Obama brought, for the first time, a black family to the White House. But more than that: there's a new black family in the neighborhood. Long a haven of ambition, achievement, community and art, Washington D.C.'s black community hasn't always had an easy relationship with the White House. To take a look at how the new residents at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might interact with D.C.'s black community we are joined by Patrik Henry Bass, Books Editor at Essence Magazine and author of Like a Mighty Stream: The March on Washington, August 28, 1963.
