The critically acclaimed movie “The Hate U Give” follows a teenager's journey to find her voice after she witnesses a white police officer shoot her best friend. The film was adapted from author Angie Thomas' debut novel of the same name. Thomas' highly anticipated follow-up novel, "On The Come Up," is out Tuesday. It tells the story of 16-year-old Bri, an aspiring rapper who is trying to make it to support her family. 20th Century Fox has already announced it will be adapted into a movie. Thomas joins “CBS This Morning” to discuss her message to publishers and why Bri represents so many young black women.
