The three famous people that I choose to write about are: 1. President Barack Obama was elected to the U.S. Senate as a Democrat, representing Illinois in 2004, ran and won for President in 2008 and became the first African American to win. - He then attended Harvard Law School, and in 1990 became the first African- American editor of the Harvard Law Review. - Obama attended Columbia University, but found New York's racial tension inescapable. - He has become the 44th president of the Unites States and the first African-American ever elected to that position. 2. Denzel Washington is one of Hollywood's sexiest and most magnetic leading men, poise and radiantly sane intelligence permeate whatever film he is in, be it a socially conscious drama, biopic, or suspense thriller. - The son of a Pentecostal minister and a hairdresser, Washington was born in Mount Vernon, NY, on December 28, 1954.
