I'm thinking about the notion of Barack Obama as the first Black President. Another interesting thing to me is that there have been lots of Presidents of Black America. So far, here's my list. I wonder what will happen in a post-Obama world when he'll be the icon but no longer the US President. Hmmm.
Past Presidents of Black America
Booker T. Washington
W. E. B. DuBois
Martin Luther King
Martin Luther King (again)
And no, I don't think Minister Farrakhan or Reverend Sharpton belong.
