Never Elect Someone to Make Change Happen For You - Four years after making history by becoming the first African-American U.S. president, Barack Obama is kicking off his second term on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. In an Inauguration Day special, we air voices of hope and resistance from the Peace Ball Sunday night in Washington, D.C., beginning with NAACP President Benjamin Jealous. "The challenge to us is to remember what we learned when we first entered this movement, never elect somebody to make change happen for you," Jealous says. "You elect somebody to make it a little easier for your movement to keep on making change happen." Published on Jan 21, 2013
