Candidates of Color: Washington's Marion Barry

Continuing a series on candidates of color in regional races, NPR's Tavis Smiley turns to Washington, D.C., and a bit of deja vu. Former mayor Marion Barry returns to city politics as a city councilman. Barry talks about his return, his criticism of the financing of a new baseball stadium, and the struggles to help the poorest area of the District of Columbia.
