Just a few days before the US presidential election, the Riz Khan show speaks to a group of young African-American students from Howard University.

We ask them about the economy, Iraq, the historic candidacy of Democratic senator Barack Obama and how the issue of race has been used in the 2008 US presidential election.

This episode of Riz Khan aired on Thursday, October 30, 2008
