The Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History hosted a reception, film premiere and roundtable discussion for the new Smithsonian Channel documentary “The Obama Years: The Power of Words” on Tuesday, Feb. 7 in Northwest.

During the evening, participants had the opportunity to consider the defining moments of Obama’s political career and to take a closer look at the words he chose, why he chose them and their lasting effect on America and the world.

The film will be available to the public later this month.
