President Barack Obama was 47 years old at the time of his inauguration. He was born on August 4th, 1961.
The first and only African-American president in the US is Barack Obama. President Bill Clinton was jokingly called "America's first black president" because he had many black friends and promoted policies that helped black people, but Mr. Clinton was white.
