With the inauguration of Barack Obama as our 44th president, people across the globe watched as a person of color, for the very first time, ascended to our nation's highest office. In a country where, only two generations ago, African Americans were denied such basic rights as where to eat, where to drink, and where to sleep, history has been made. But with all the excitement and anticipation of the incoming Obama administration, and the symbolism represented by a man leading a country that would have once considered him not a person but property, we should be reminded that the pursuit of equality for all of our nation's people is far from over.
