As President Donald Trump assumes power, we reflect on the legacy of the nation’s first African-American president and first African-American first lady of the United States, former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.
During a special edition of NewsOne Now, Roland Martin and his panel of guests quantified the impact President Obama and his administration had on the nation, as well as how well they handled issues important to African-Americans.
During the opening segment of Friday’s show, we heard President Obama discuss how he believed his tenure in office should be graded based off the crumbling economy he inherited and what should be considered when determining the success of his presidency.
