Farrakhan says Obama draws a 'oneness of spirit'

Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, congratulates President-elect Barack Obama during a sermon at the Mosque Maryam in Chicago, Sunday, Nov. 9, 2008.

"President-elect Obama has energized all segments of the depressed, downtrodden, rejected and despised," he said in a 90-minute speech at Mosque Maryam on the city's South Side. "Now it is up to us to take the new energy that he has given us ... and channel that energy into making ourselves better."
