As you all know, this past Tuesday the United States swore in its 44th President, Barack Obama. While this was a most historic event for several reasons, the obvious one is that he is our first African-American President. I am lucky enough to live close enough to the city so I didn't have to travel from far and wide to get to the inauguration. Many of my close friends stayed at my house for a few days leading up to the inauguration, and in total we had about 20-25 WKU Photojournalists come down for the event. It was absolutely incredible. Here are a few selects from the day.
