Stretch Of Highway Running Through A Hipster In LA Neighborhood To Be Named After Barack Obama.  

 

History is full of people doing things!! California is set to name a stretch of highway in the Los Angeles area for former President Barack Obama after state lawmakers approved the plan.

A stretch of the 134 Freeway passing through the hipster Eagle Rock section of Los Angeles and the cities of Glendale and Pasadena will be known as the President Barack H. Obama Highway after the Legislature signed off on a resolution Tuesday.

The measure doesn’t require the governor’s signature.

When it comes to trailblazers in Black History, it’s good to read about the accomplishments men and women made in the past so that we can have certain freedoms and privileges today. Let’s face it – without their toil and effort, America would not be in the position it is now. Just look at integration and voting rights. Even though there are people within the halls of Congress who wish to eliminate voting rights for Blacks, the truth of the matter is that many of them will not succeed.

As we look at what Blacks have been able to achieve, we have to admit that we have come a long way. Yes, it may not be far enough but we have come a long way since the 1800’s and 1900’s.

Obama Highway after the Legislature signed off on a resolution Tuesday.”

As a note: before transferring to Columbia University in New York, Obama attended Occidental in Eagle Rock for two years.
