Intro President Assessment Project

Model Quotation:
Here is one historic trend-break that has occurred during the Obama administration that has major significance for the well-being of African-Americans: the beginnings of a decline in the national prison population, after decades of expansion. The Obama administration deserves a fair share of credit. In 2010, Obama signed the Fair Sentencing Act, reducing prison time for convictions involving crack cocaine. Under Attorney General Eric Holder, sentencing guidelines were made retroactive, leading to the release of thousands. To date, the reductions have been small compared to the total incarcerated population, but the reversal is historic, and its disproportionate significance for African-Americans is evident.
