Monday, 28 January 2013 11:19 By Staff and Contributors, Free Speech Radio News | Report

Four years ago, people across the world watched intently as the United States inaugurated its first black president.

While many acknowledge some of the progress made, there is also criticism. FSRN reporters in five countries, Canada, Mexico, Haiti, Cameroon and Pakistan, spoke to residents about the legacy of President Obama so far and what they’d like to see in the future.

This segment includes the voices of France Stohner, part of a Filipino Women's Collective in Canada; Journalist Shair Ali Khan and shopkeeper Nayaz Ali in Pakistan;  Government worker and Teacher Caroline Herrera in Mexico; John Nkemngong Nkengason & Felicitas Ndikum Fohneng at the University of Yaounde, Cameroon; 70-year-old street sweep Jocyln Claire and 26-year-old student Stephane Dupin in Haiti; McGill University law student Olivier Jarda; and Blanca Carro a student in English & Sociology in Mexico City. Thanks to Lillian Boctor, Andalusia Knoll, Ansel Herz, Gabe Matthews and Ngala Chimtom for conducting these interviews.
