    I moved back to the usa from France in 2001, and found myself in charge of Obama Headquarters in Bennington VT. before the primary.
    I cried like a fool during the oath today. It was a long journey from the age of eleven when I saw a sculpture by my beloved art teacher Meta Warrick Fuller: it was a group of people carrying a man on their shoulders and I was terrified because I was told the man had been killed because he was a negro-like Mrs Fuller.,.
    I had no idea what a negro was , but for the rest of my life this has haunted me.
    Mrs Fuller, and my dear friends Ralph and Fanny Ellison could not see what I saw today so I wept for their sakes too.
