Kara Walker Rattles Art World Again

Kara Walker is a controversial artist known best for her large black-and-white silhouettes that deal with issues of racism, slavery, sex and liberation.

She's received plenty of flack for it. Farai Chideya visits the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles to talk with Walker about her exhibition, "My Complement, My Enemy, My Oppressor, My Love."
