Barck Obama because the first black president of the United States on January 20th, 2009. An old black lady wrote the memory of her life to in order people do not forget what black people had been living during hundred of years and how the change became possible.
During the period black people were slaves they were sold to white people like animals and had to work hard every day without being paid or having any kind of recognition. They did not go to school, could not read or count and it was a way to prevent they could revolt. They some of white people started to teach them. Some of the started to revolt and escaped. Then with the arrival of Martin Luther King in the years 1950-1960, the real fight for equity with white people started. He carried the words and ideas of all black people but black people were tracked, some were beated some others arrested.
Now I feel free when I realise things have completely changed and people have voted for a black president.
