Pulitzer Center grantee and The Grio journalist Natasha Alford joined CBS News to discuss racial identity for black Puerto Ricans. Recently, activists and demographers are pushing for more Puerto Ricans to identify themselves as black on the census in order to confront the complicated topic of race on the island. Alford has previously reported from Puerto Rico for her Pulitzer Center-supported project, "A Revolution for Puerto Rico's Afro-Latinos."
