Squaring off in Selma

Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama will fight for the black vote and for free media coverage during the jubilee commemoration of the voting rights march on Selma.

Some polls are showing that Obama now leads Clinton among African American voters, one of the strongest blocs in any Democratic presidential primary particularly because of their strength in southern States.

This will be the first time the two candidates have met on the campaign trail.
