Mamas Lovin' Obama

Four famous African-American mamas revealed to the importance of the 2008 election. Holly Robinson Peete, Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon, Lisa Nichols and Keisha Whitaker say Barack Obama becoming the next president holds a very special significance.


Actress Holly Robinson Peete, a mother of four, proudly told MomLogic, "America grew up enough to kick the race obstacle out of our way to progress. I so wish Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, Barack's Grandma, my Aunt Sheila, my dad and so many others could be here to witness this transformation toward a more perfect union."

Gorgeous actress Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon knew this day would come, "I knew history would be made today." She said she woke up on Tuesday morning with an "electric energy going through me" -- and it wasn't her from her three children!

Author Lisa Nichols asked her 13-year-old son what Obama's win meant to him and he said, "Mom, you've always told me that I can be anything, but now I have real evidence in Barack Obama."

Producer, TV personality, and mother of three Keisha Whitaker, said, "If I could put a label on this occasion, it would be 'Life is endless possibilities!'"
