All of us here at the Equal Justice Society congratulate our new President, Barack Obama, and Vice President Joe Biden, and their families on this historic day. Our president, Eva Paterson, is somewhere near the Capitol watching the ceremonies! (And here’s the text of President Obama’s inauguration speech.)
The San Francisco Chronicle’s Leah Garchik mentions Eva in her inauguration day diary:
Civil rights activist Eva Paterson passed “a guy in the street” hawking his wares: “O.K., get your Obama air freshener. This is what change smells like.”
As soon as President Obama finished taking the oath of office, whitehouse.gov turned into a brand new site.
