Whether or not race is a key issue in the 2008 presidential election, the nomination of a minority candidate marks a clear turn in America's political history. Will it help close the racial divide at all? African Americans and others have politicized art, music, culture and comedy to make statements about the race and battle to be represented fairly in the higher education system and political landscape. What does it mean to be black in America today, and will that change as a result of who is elected president?
