By the time she took the stage, the floor of the Grand Ballroom at the Duke Energy Center downtown was literally bouncing. The energy continued throughout her speech.

“We are in these days witnessing the making of history,” said William J. Shaw, president of the National Baptist Convention, USA. “We do not call the senator and his wife Jesus, but in his candidacy, the hopes of generations are finding expression.

“When history is made you can say, “I was there.”
