Please help in urging the Obama campaign to invite Amanda Jones, 109 and daughter of a Texas slave, to the inauguration of the first black president of the US. Amanda Jones has lived a life long enough to touch three centuries and after fighting for and exercising her right to vote consistently for 70 years, she has voted early for the country's first black presidential nominee.
