Obama fan


In 2008 Barack Obama was scheduled to speak May 23 2008 as part of the 37th International Convention of the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists (CBTU), to be held at the Renaissance Hotel, St Louis Missouri.

Obama spoke at last year’s CBTU international convention (held May 2007 in Chicago), and CBTU officials "think he will be able to honor his commitment again this year".

According to Dwight Kirk, media coordinator for CBTU.

“When Obama spoke at our convention last year, there was not a lot of union support for him at all - Hillary was the flavor of the month,
It really opened the door for black trade unionists to go back to their national unions and say, ‘Maybe we should take a look at this guy.’”
