In 2009, the Martin Luther King Day of Service was followed by the first Presidential Inauguration of an African American. This historic moment set the stage for Barack Obama's Delegate, Krista Nelson, to fulfill an act of devotion in the January bitter cold – a final gesture in a movement that started in neighborhood kitchens and coffee shops years before. A nail-biting subway ride inauguration morning, an insider’s view of the “Yes We Did” Inaugural ball and the revealing struggle to balance frantic/fanatical with reasonable/rational moves us through Krista’s journey replete with reflection and renewal. “We fixed our gaze on Barack, the hub, and connected with him through more spokes than I could imagine. The strength of the wheel was in the spokes. Each time I communed with Barack, I activated an energy-transmitting spoke. Each time a Barack story was shared, a Barack souvenir was grasped, a Barack photo was taken, a Barack encounter occurred between Barack and a supporter of Barack, a transmission of energy took place that carried him to a place of significance, but not a place of permanence, a remarkable moment, an Inaugural moment: the Crowning of The King.” - Krista Nelson, Crowning The King
