Church Leaders Celebrate Barack Obama

A new day has dawned, as the leadership of African American churches mark this historical moment in America's history, while making a commitment to address one of the biggest threats to African Americans in the United States-HIV/AIDS. The rate of HIV/AIDS, in some African American communities, is becoming greater than those in some undeveloped African countries. According to Seele, "With lessons learned from working in both African and African American communities, we look forward to working with President-Elect Barack Obama, and contributing to the development of a national agenda to fight AIDS in the United States - while continuing to do great work around the world." Seele, whose voice spans continents, was included in Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential Persons in the World and Essence Magazine's 50 Most Powerful Women Shaping Our World, along with Oprah Winfrey.
