President Clinton this week backed off the idea of apologizing to African Americans for slavery. At the same time, the original sponsor of a House bill calling for the apology, Representative Tony Hall (D-OH), acknowledged this week that his proposal had generated too much opposition to be approved any time soon.

Guest:
• Dr. Michael Blakey, a professor of anthropology at Howard University in Washington, DC and the director of the New York African Burial Ground Project.
