B at Inauguration!

I braved it in DC to experience President Barack Obama's inauguration first hand, and boy was it worth it! While many referred to it as "the other Allstar weekend" because ot the hundred+ parties taking place, it was really about the pending hope of a people, and a more enduring celebration that will take place over the next 4 years while President Obama is in office. Our new President is no longer a black president, but our president, and the collective tone of pride and accomplishment emanated by people of all races was felt all over DC this weekend. I have a few pics to recap, but check out Essence and The YBF for more details about the weekend.
