* We continue to recognize the significant achievements of African Americans during Black History month by acknowledging Barack Obama. As the first African American president, Barack Obama led the nation as a Democratic leader from 2009-2017. Obama was born and raised on Honolulu, Hawaii, and later moved to LA for college. He tried to pursue a career as a community organizer to confront the issues of race and poverty, after years of studies and internships; he was accepted into Harvard for his research. Barack Obama became the first African American president of the Harvard Law Review in 1990. He graduated as a lawyer, but decided to pursue a life in politics. He became a State Senator for a couple terms, but then moved up to be a U.S. Senator many years later. He finally decided to run for presidency in 2007, and won the presidential election of 2008 as the first African American President of the United States.
