One year ago today, on November 4, 2008, Barack Obama was elected President of the United States. While his victory was undoubtedly a momentous and historic event for the entire nation, Black people took particular pride in this singularly visible symbol of racial progress.

In recognition of the anniversary of Obama’s election, NewsOne invites you to both relive the excitement and consider its meaning. Take a look at our coverage from last November – links are below – and tell us in the comments: A year after Obama was elected, what do you think this historic moment really meant for our community?
