Celebrations of Obama's election victory on Nov 4, 2008

November 4, 2008 will go down as one of the greatest and happiest days in American history. Little-covered a mainstream media focused on vote-counts, bloggers captured remarkable images from American cities when the public spontaneously took to the streets to celebrate Obama's victory.


Kadfly photo-blogged the celebrations, writing on his blog: "I'll let the pictures and the videos do the talking tonight."

For African Americans, the election of Obama was the fulfillment of a dream. They recognized it at once as the opening of a new chapter of American history. I listened to a some women sing "Lift Every Voice and Sing" at the front gates of the White House. Witnessing this scene was one of one of the real highlights of the extraordinary night.
