From Ben Smith:
Barack Obama just completed a conference call African-American leaders around the country, the end of which my colleague Glenn Thrush was able to listen to, and he sends over his notes.

The 10:15 call featured Oprah Winfrey, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Donna Brazile, House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, and Rev. Joseph Lowery, as well as Obama himself.

Obama, according to a participant, talked talked about the election in the context of history, and what it would say to the world to see his daughters play on the South Lawn of the White House.

Oprah called on those listening to get out the vote, to not let up, and to make America "truly one nation indivisible."

The call is another mark of Obama's broad, if low-profile, effort to drive historic black turnout.
