Barack Obama Ndiaye is a baby in Tennessee. He was born to a Senegalese couple on Nov. 2, 2008, two days before the election of the first black president of the United States. "Everywhere he go, 'Baby Barack, baby Barack Obama, baby Barack Obama,' " explained Amadou Ndiaye, a biomedical engineer who came to the United States in 1994. "It's a part of history now." Now almost 14 months old, baby Barack is walking and talking. His first word was "Go." This photograph of Mr. Ndiaye and his baby makes reference to one of the few early images of President Obama, with his mother Stanley Ann Dunham Soetoro, in Hawaii in 1963.
