The black vote in Oakland
The African-American vote has become a major focus during this national election with the presence of the first serious black contender, Barack Obama. Black voters are largely choosing between Obama and Hillary Clinton, wife of Bill Clinton, who Toni Morrison affectionately called the “first black president.” Of those interviewed in Oakland on Super Tuesday, the vote leaned heavily towards Barack Obama and no one voted Republican. I shot, produced video and helped with the Web production. As a team my class turned this project around in an afternoon. We were featured on Yahoo! News.
