Obama victory sets off jubilation

From Harlem, to the avenue in Atlanta where the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was born, to Oakland, Calif., Americans black and white celebrated Barack Obama's election with tears, the honking of horns, screams of joy, arms lifted skyward — and memories of civil rights struggles past.

An estimated 100,000 people who had crowded into Grant Park in Chicago to greet Obama erupted in cheers and jubilantly waved American flags as TV news announced the Illinois senator had been elected the first black president. The Rev. Jesse Jackson, who had made two White House bids himself, had tears streaming down his face. Yahoo Link
