We take a look at what’s ahead this week, with Marcus Mabry, associate national editor of The New York Times, and Latoya Peterson, editor of the blog Racialicious.

Wall Street tops the news with lawmakers voting on what could become a sweeping overhaul of the financial system, as Goldman Sachs executives are expected to testify before a Senate subcommittee on Tuesday. Plus, Florida Governor Charlie Crist, facing a serious primary opponent from the right in Marco Rubio, might run on an independent ticket for U.S. Senate. In cultural news, the remake of the 1984 horror film classic, Nightmare on Elm Street, comes to theaters on Friday, and the Kentucky Derby kicks off on Saturday.
