Lift Every Voice and Sing--CNN Declares for Obama at 11:00pm!
Minutes after CNN declared that Barack Obama will be our next President, CNN online showed a crowd gathered at Ebeneezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. This church, the pulpit of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was filled with many of the leaders of the African American community. After a prayer by the Pastor, they started to sing, "Lift Every Voice and Sing."
If you asked me a few years ago, would people be singing this song (known as the African American anthem) as an African American is elected our next President.
