June Jordan T-shirt featuring famous line used in President Obama's campaign

Jordan's famous quote "We Are The Ones We Have Been Waiting For." has been re-used thirty years later - in the speeches of Barack Obama's. Originally it was written in the Poem for South African women in 1978. It is now reproduced on a T-shirt designed by Renaud Garnier Visual Branding for the "June Jordan School for Equity" in San Francisco, California (for all staff and students) and also as a fund raiser for Swell cinema who is is producing a documentary on the poet/activist.
