                      I had been petitioning HBO to get this on DVD since January of 2009. I am so glad they finally got it together; I would have gleefully picked up many copies while in D.C. for the Inauguration. It's also refreshing to see this all anon, as it authentically brings back the elation we all felt being out on the Mall for the Celebration & the Inauguration on the 20th.

                        I have shown this dvd to friends whom I invited to dinner.
                        we all rate it five stars. However, we were disappointed that Aretha Franklin was not in the DVD, she is the one artist that is best know among our generation. The hat that she wore was also a fashion statement and we would have liked to have it on tape.

                          "We Are One" is uplifting, entertaining and Informative. I watched the original performance and waited anxiously to be able to buy it.

                          When Pete Seeger came out, I just started crying.
