Storyline

2008 will go down as a historic year for America. For African Americans in particular, it will be remembered as the year that Hope built. The architect: the son of a White woman from Kansas and a Black man from Kenya. Barack Obama rose from political obscurity to capture the imagination of a nation with a candidacy no-one saw coming. As he stands poised to become the first Black Man in the White House, BET NEWS asks the question on many lips: what will an Obama victory mean for us? Gathering a wide range of voices - from entertainers and ballers to political players - this one hour Special explores African American expectations of an Obama Presidency, his race, and the forces that have brought him to history's door. Written by Tony Ducret
