2008 us presidential electionOn air: Is this the biggest moment in modern Black history? by B.W.I.E 2008/06/062008/06/062 Comments on On air: Is this the biggest moment in modern Black history?Listen to Candance Allen, an African American in London, speak about Obama’s nomination on BBC radio.
Considering all that African Americans have encountered I would say the period during the 50s &60s were the biggest and most important moments. During this time millions of African Americans mobilized and through the struggle engendered rights that ALL Americans enjoy.
It is really scary how people are minimizing the long and proud history of African Americans. I am very disappointed that people are even making such broad sweeping statements in light of such a proud past.
It is definitely debatable which is THE biggest moment in modern Black history. I think Obama’s nomination for US President is ONE of them.
