A flashback on the Obama-mania before the 1st Black President was elected.
Harlem, the capital of black America is since more than a century, a point of friction drive of the torments of America, but also one of the crucibles of the most radical and most creative political and social developments of the North American continent, much as a bastion of crime and violence. The election of the first black president is the spark that ignites all the hopes and dreams of a more egalitarian, more generous and fraternal. View of northern Manhattan neighborhoods, This historic election is the redemption of this democracy that plays hide and seek from its birth with civil rights and the principles. A wave of hope rises Harlem is now that one can only worry about what would happen if this hope is transmuted into disappointment.
