Although hopeful, Ann Nixon Cooper, a 107-year-old African American never thought she would live to witness Barack Obama being sworn in as the first Black commander in chief. BET.com provides readers with a short article describing her feelings about this exciting day in her life.
Electing a black president is a step in the right direction for the African American community. I think it's really exciting to interview someone who has lived through the Civil Rights Movement and witnessed first-hand the struggle it has taken for the African American community to advance to this point in time. Although it's short, it is a nice feature story to have on the BET Web site.
