For every Obama T-shirt, Obama handbag and pair of Obama pajamas created in this country, there are Obama collectibles created in Africa. And the Herskovits Library of African Studies at Northwestern University -- the largest library of Africana anywhere in the world -- is intently collecting them.

Northwestern’s Herskovits Library has assembled what is undoubtedly the largest collection of Obama T-shirts, CDs, buttons, bumper stickers, artwork, posters and other materials created in Africa. And, just in time for the inauguration, it has expanded an exhibition of items from its Africa’s Response to Obama collection and extended it through Feb. 27.
