Is race the pink elephant in our national living room?

As the racially charged George Zimmerman murder trial gets underway  Amy Beth and crime writer Patrick Moore, founder of the All Things Crime blog will tackle the big issues in the case: race, guns, the media. With such a hot spotlight on him, can Zimmerman really get a fair trial? How can the media help tone down--or ramp up--the rhetoric? And what about the social media wild card? Will jurors and witnesses feel intimidated as some did during the Arias trial?

Amy Beth will also chat with a young filmmaker,Tara Tomicevic, whose latest in-progress project Muted focuses on the lack of media attention missing children of color receive.
