"During the course of administration, and in order to disturb it, the artillery of the press has been leveled against us, charged with whatsoever its licentiousness could devise or dare. These abuses of an institution so important to freedom and science are deeply to be regretted, inasmuch as they tend to lessen its usefulness and to sap its safety." —Thomas Jefferson (1805)

I want every African-American child, family, and worker to have access to great schools, safe communities, and a good paying job. I want every disadvantaged child in America to have a choice on where they go to school.

The President- My fellow Americans, as Black

0-12

History Month 2017 comes to a close.

0-16

I am very grateful for the many wonderful opportunities to

0-19

honor African American heroes, faith leaders,

0-23

entrepreneurs, and the many others who changed

0-26

the course of our nation.

0-28

We are blessed by the lives and examples of

0-30

those who have made this nation of beacon of

0-33

freedom, talent, and unbreakable

0-36

American spirit.

This week I had the privilege of visiting The

0-41

Nation Museum of African American history and

0-44

culture right here in Washington D.C. It's a new

0-48

beautiful Smithsonian Museum that serves as a

0-51

shining example of African Americans incredible

0-55

contribution to our culture, our Society,

0-59

and our history.

1-00

It also tells of the great struggle for freedom and

1-04

equality that prevailed against the sins of

1-07

slavery and the injustice of discrimination.

1-11

The work and love the people who help create

1-13

such a masterpiece is a testament to the legacy of

1-17

so many leaders it honors.

1-19

I left that museum confident that together

1-23

America can overcome any challenge.

1-26

there's a great quote by Mohamad Ali in the museum

1-29

"I shook up the world."

1-31

He said.

1-32

And that's what he did.

1-33

So did leaders like Sojourner Truth, Frederick

1-37

Douglas, Booker T Washington, Martin Luther

1-40

King and so many others.

1-43

They shook up the world for the better, because

1-45

they inspired our nation to march toward justice

1-48

and freedom for all.

1-50

Today and everyday I pledge to continue that

1-53

march so that every American no matter his

1-56

background, no matter her background has the chance

2-00

to climb that great ladder of success.

2-04

It was very special to accompany Dr. Ben Carson

2-07

and his family for the first time seeing the

2-10

Carson exhibit.

2-12

I am proud that soon he will serve in my cabinet

2-15

as the secretary of housing and

2-17

urban development.

2-18

HUD has a very very powerful meaning, far

2-22

beyond housing.

2-24

Its about transforming our communities about bringing

2-26

back hope, and Ben will do a fantastic job.

2-30

That what im committed to doing also, I want every

2-34

African American child, family, and worker to have

2-37

access to great schools, safe communities and

2-41

good paying job.

2-42

I want every disadvantaged child in America to have a

2-47

choice on where they go to school.

2-49

So Important.

2-50

I also want to honor and promote the achievements

2-53

of historically black colleges and universities

2-57

throughout our nation.

2-58

They do a fantastic job.

3-00

They're not given the credit that they deserve.

3-04

And they're gonna start getting that credit.

3-06

In order to help African Americans thrive were

3-09

working very to make that every child can grow up in

3-12

a safe community and have

3-14

access to high paying jobs.

3-16

We've lost a lot of our best jobs to other

3-19

countries and this has hurt the African American

3-22

community very badly.

3-24

This week I met with manufacturing CEOs were

3-27

going to be working to bring back those jobs, and

3-30

I mean really good paying jobs.

3-33

Ill be talking more about these issues in my joint

3-36

session address to congress and to all

3-38

Americans next Tuesday evening.

3-41

I hope you will be watching.

3-43

Thank you, God bless you.

3-45

And God Bless America.
