A Historic Presidential Election
On November 4th, 2008, Barack Obama was elected as the first black president of the United States. This is a day that will obviously go down in history as an amazing day full of promise, a day that gives children a new role model. A new chapter is being written not only in Black history , but in the history of the United States.
Questions to Ponder
- Barack Obama overcame many obstacles to become the next President. Do you think it will make him a better President?
- What effect do you think having a black President will make on the next generation?
- Take a look at the timeline: From Slavery to Civil Rights. Has the change taken place in a short time or a long one?
- What are the greatest challenges you think President Obama will be facing?
- How quickly do you think President Obama will appoint his cabinet staff?
- How do you think President Obama's life compares to President Lincoln's life?
