  • Scholar's new book examines cultural forces behind Obama's victory

    Cultural critic Jabari Asim, a scholar in residence in African American studies and in journalism at Illinois, is the author of "What Obama Means," to be published on Inauguration Day. Asim says he looked back to see how a "harmonic convergence" of trends in media and market forces, as well as in the electorate and in black leadership, made the Obama victory possible.
