Since I was not invited to attend the inauguration in Washington DC, I decided to honor Obama by sketching the old Well's Built Hotel. Built in 1926 this building provided lodging to African Americans during segregation when rooms were not otherwise available. Today the building is a Museum of African American History and Culture. The building was strangely deserted, perhaps folks were at an inauguration party in another part of town.
