CHICAGO - Hundreds of people stood, cheered and waved small American flags in a Chicago museum auditorium as they watched a live telecast of President Barack Obama delivering his inaugural address Monday.
Some people snapped photos of Obama's image on the screen as they viewed the festivities happening in Washington.
Carol Adams, CEO and president of the DuSable Museum of African American History, told the crowd at the museum the day ``is proof positive that history is still being made.''
The museum is located near the University of Chicago, where Obama studied and later taught before he became president. A standing-room only crowd filled the museum's 400-seat auditorium for the telecast and Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration.
The crowd sang along with James Taylor and listened intently to Obama's speech.
