North Carolina Buses Leave For Obama Inauguration

The Raleigh-based Martin Luther King Committee has chartered six buses heading to Washington D-C for President Obama’s Inauguration.

The buses will pull out in the morning – leaving from Raleigh, Durham and Charlotte.

Phyllis Coley, the founder of Spectacular Magazine, helped organize the trip.  She will ride the Durham bus.

Phyllis Coley:  "I’m going for the second time, because again, the same way I felt the first time, I don’t think that I will see another African American president sworn-in in my life-time."

Coley says she wanted her second inauguration trip to be even more historic.  She says the group will also spend their time in D-C visiting the King Memorial and the Smithsonian Museum of African Art.
