Inauguration Pilgrimage

"I remember when it was almost like a dream that African-Americans, or people of color, that every race could actually achieve things," said Hogan. "Now they are actually seeing it, so its not a matter of saying you can't do it. It's a reality. There are no barriers, so if you're willing to work hard, and really put the effort in you're going to succeed."

Twenty-four fifth and sixth graders from the Frazier Preparatory Academy traveled from Chicago - blogging and shooting video along the way - to see the Inauguration, and were surprised to run into 'Good Morning America' anchor Robin Roberts at the Smithsonian National Air & Space Musuem. The talented group of youngsters - known as the DC 24 and chosen by a committee of faculty and staff based on grades, test scores, essays and 'most importantly, citizenship,' according to their website - seized the day and interviewed Roberts on the spot.
