Introduction and activities: Obama Elected
There are some moments in history when we feel that the world will never quite be the same again: for example, the first moon landing, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the attack on the Twin Towers in New York. Many people had this feeling when Barack Obama walked on stage in Chicago in November 2008 as the winner of the Presidential Election. It was a historic election in many ways. Never before had so many Americans cast their vote. Never before had two sitting Senators run against each other. And not least, never before had an African American been elected to the White House.
