Actor Taye Diggs discusses new children's book 'Chocolate Me!'

Actor Taye Diggs, best known for his work on Broadway and for starring in ABC's "Private Practice," has written a new children's book called "Chocolate Me!"

The book tells the story of a black child who is teased for looking different, but eventually learns to embrace what sets him apart from his predominatly white neighbors with the help of his mother. Diggs, who worked on the book with his cousin Shane Evans, wrote it with the goal of helping kids accept their skin color.

Diggs sits down with Carol Costello and Ali Velshi today on American Morning to talk about the book and what inspired him to write it, and what we can expect from the new season of his hit show, which premieres this Thursday.
