'A Mercy' Challenges Students at Cardozo High

At Cardozo High School in D.C., Frazier O'Leary's advanced placement students are studying "A Mercy," the newest Toni Morrison novel. Although the book has been challenging for many, students say they can relate to the main characters. O'Leary himself thinks that, if nothing else, the novel will help students do well on AP exams and impress colleges. Video by Megan Rossman/washingtonpost.com
