This will make Obama the first African-American President in the 232-year history of the country.

In his victory speech on November 4, 2008, before a crowd of hundreds of thousands of his supporters in Chicago’s Grant Park, Obama proclaimed that “change has come to America“.

    It has been a long journey for improvements on civil rights and equality and with Obama being sworn in, the civil rights movement have come full circle since the “I have a dream speech”. I hope Obama can concentrate on increasing jobs, advancing education, and the decreasing of our dependence on fossil fuels.
