Mind-mapping Obama's life on Louis Riel Day

When you're a Canadian studying at an American university, how do you celebrate Louis Riel Day?

By mind-mapping Barack Obama's life, of course.

My assignment: 
"Select a person of color who made significant contributions to the culture of the United States. Include appropriate images for the concepts and include the relationship between two concepts when linked. You also need to include links to appropriate pages on the Internet that serve as resources about the person you choose."
I started by downloading Inspiration (available for a free 30-day trial - just click on the link), a cheap mapping software package. Then, I got to work.

Here are the results, in PDF format. Unfortunately, you can't click on the links, listen to the audio, or watch the video, but you get the point.

If you're inspired, someone still needs to do this for Louis Riel. We're waiting!
