dc.description.abstract M EMORIES of President Obama's election and inauguration, which electrified the American, world, and pan-Mrican imaginations approximately two years ago have almost faded under the harsh demands of governance, in the face of Washington's descent into political gridlock verging on ungovernability. The euphoria that temporarily lifted the country from the abyss of collective despondency has dissipated as the Great Recession continues to devastate lives and livelihoods and mock the fantasies of indebted consumption of the American dream. The increasingly embattled Obama administration finds itself buffeted between the angry Tea Party rabble on the right and the impatient progressives of the left. In the meantime, African American leaders are beginning to question the president's commitment to a "black agenda" more openly. en_US
