(CNN) – A recently-released photo from the White House shows President Barack Obama editing his inauguration address just over a week before delivering it at the start of his second term.
Among the handwritten changes is the replacement of the phrase "not what we look like" with "not the color of our skin," the words he went on to deliver January 21.
"History tells us," he wrote on the pictured draft after quoting the famous opening lines of the Declaration of Independence.
The official White House photo was taken by Obama's top photographer Pete Souza. The caption says Obama was working with Jon Favreau, his outgoing speechwriter, in the Oval Office on January 16.
