Some perspectives on Hillary Clinton's appeal to African-Americans HERE.

An excerpt:

As she campaigns in front of African-American audiences Hillary Clinton presents herself as the president's most stalwart ally against conservative and Republican efforts to delegitimize him, and she offers herself as the most reliable defender of Obama's legacy. Black voters, suspecting that many Americans are determined to erase any evidence of the president's accomplishments once his term is over, believe that electing Hillary will put an exclamation mark at the end of the Obama presidency.

For many older African-American voters, voting for Hillary is a way to vote for Obama one final time.
