The election of President Barack Obama began on March 5, 1770, at the Boston Massacre with the death of Crispus Attucks…

We the People: From Crispus Attucks to Barack Obama takes a close look at the progression of America as she frees herself from Britain, battles slavery and finally culminates in the election of the first African American President.

Touching upon many of the sacrifices African Americans have made to pave the way from slave ships to Obama’s arrival at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, the film provides an historical perspective.

Features commentary from Spike Lee, Al Sharpton, Gayle King, Wyclef Jean and more.

“[A] chronicle of some of the unsung accomplishments of African Americans over the centuries.” – Marvin Harrington, Jr.
