Happy MLK & Inauguration Day!

I can’t think of a more fitting way to celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. than the second swearing in of the first African-American president of the United States—Barack Obama.

Having a African-American leading the free world is more than Dr. King could’ve ever imagined happening in only two decades after his death.

While I’m not in D.C. this year, I did have the pleasure and honor of attending the inauguration in 2009. Despite the chilly temps, it was an electrifying occasion that I’m proud to have witnessed.  My sister will serve as the unofficial BGG correspondent tonight as she’ll be attending the main ball! Hopefully, she can get a few candid shots of the stars in attendance!

Out of the mass crowd, I managed to run into my buddy, Rashadd, from high school!

The crowd was amped for the inauguration!

There were many people holding signs displaying their religious viewpoints. 

The crowd was amped with excitement and anticipation as we headed to the mall! inauguration!
