'ED Show' playbook: Friday, May 11

Some African-American pastors plan to criticize President Obama this Sunday for his embrace of marriage equality

Bishop Harry Jackson Jr., Senior Pastor at Hope Christian, is one of them.  He says same-sex marriage is “an assault” on society. 

Michael Eric Dyson (who’s filling in for Ed) and Professor Obery Hendricks will try and show Bishop Jackson the light on tonight's show.

The mother of murdered gay teen Matthew Shepard calls Mitt Romney’s bullying an "act of torment."  Judy Shepard, President of the Matthew Shepard Foundation Governing Board, joins Michael tonight.

J.P. Morgan Chase sends shockwaves through the economy with a $2 billion loss.  And Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is not happy.

An explosive video could finally ruin Scott Walker.  John Nichols, Washington Correspondent of The Nation, reports on the Wisconsin "divide and conquer" bombshell.

Two days before Mother's Day, the mother of Trayvon Martin urges other moms to get involved in the effort to repeal stand your ground laws.

And in the Big Finish, the stars of Broadway's A Streetcar Named DesireBlair Underwood and Nicole Ari Parker, join Michael to discuss their roles, and what role race is playing in the new production.
