Semaja: February 2009 Archives

Though they're only second-graders, Semaja Frazier and Brian Jackson feel a personal stake in the inauguration of the president-elect.

Just about every Saturday between August and Nov. 4, 2008, the two could be found door to door canvassing for then-candidate Barack Obama in Hammond, Ind.

"We helped him win," said Semaja. "I'm excited. Now we're going to Washington to see him be the first black president. I can't wait."
