To represent the first election of Barack Obama on the magnetic cover of the New Yorker on November 17, 2008, Bob Staake chose to link it to the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, a symbol of the struggle of blacks for their rights. It is here that Martin Luther King gave his famous speech I have a dream on August 28, 1963. The full moon in the W of the New Yorker celebrates liberation, while the reflection of the columns recalls the years of slavery.
