"We particularly wanted our sons to see that despite what the world has said about African-American males, all things are possible. Referring to Obama's first campaign slogan of Yes, We Can, it's exciting to us that yes, we can see the reality of Dr. King's dream come to pass. Obama is the reality that we are making strides and progressing and we wanted our children to experience this momentous occasion."
