The focus was on African American leaders that lead the way, Frederick Douglas, Jesse Jackson, etc. to the 44th president of the United States, Barack Obama. Above, a salute and performance was made by portraying Obama (Felton Brown lll), Michelle Obama (Tempest Dorsey), and their children Sasha and Malia (Deanna and Sister Allen.)
