Faces of Black History: President Barack Obama
CBS12 News honors Black History Month with Faces of Black History each day. There is perhaps no more prominent figure in modern-day Black history than current President Barack Obama, the nation's first African American president.
The nation's 44th president worked as a community organizer before going on to graduate from Harvard Law School.
President Obama will continue work after his second and final term through the recently developed Obama Foundation.
