In 2009, the Martin Luther King Day of Service was followed by the first Presidential Inauguration of an African American. This historic moment set the stage for Barack Obama's Delegate, Krista Nelson, to fulfill an act of devotion in the January bitter cold - a final gesture in a movement that started in neighborhood kitchens and coffee shops years before.

Not since the time of John F. Kennedy’s Camelot has a presidential election so electrified the American public—especially the young—as did the 2008 election when Barack Obama, the junior senator from Illinois made history by becoming the first African-American President of the United States.

Won on goodreads giveaway. Well written, it kept my attention.

Loyally, hard work, and the pursuit of what a person feels is just….no matter if your for or against the person running for election, the lengths people go through to help a Candidate win the elect
