Speaking to the graduating class of Washington, D.C.’s Howard University, President Barack Obama emphasizes that his election hasn’t created a “post-racial society” despite improved race relations.

Stressing the need to keep pushing for change, he gives the students at the historically black university impassioned advice on how to “shape our collective future.”

Chief among that advice: Vote, “not just some of the time but all of the time.” He adds: “When we don’t vote we give away our power.”
