Hometown faithful come out to watch, celebrate in Chicago
CHICAGO (AP) – In a museum auditorium in President Barack Obama’s hometown, hundreds of people stood and cheered as they watched a live telecast of his inaugural address Monday. Many waved American flags, and some snapped photos of Obama’s image on the screen.
The festivities happening in Washington may not have been as poignant as when he became the nation’s first black president four years ago. But for the Obama faithful gathered in Chicago, not far from his family’s South Side neighborhood and the university where he taught before becoming a U.S. senator, it was still cause for celebration.
“Today is proof positive that history is still being made,” Carol Adams, CEO and president of the DuSable Museum of African American History, told the standing-room only crowd inside the 400-seat auditorium.
