Quicklet on Barack Obama's Dreams From My FathereBook - 2012
The first time I saw a news report about Barack Obama was well before he became the first black President of the United States of America. And, in this book, Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance, Obama takes the reader back to those not-too-distant days when the world was completely different. Despite his obvious agreeable qualities, I was one of those people who did not believe Obama would become the Democratic Party's nomination for president. And I certainly did not believe he could be president. Not once did I imagine that so many millions of Americans-regardless of race or creed-were, to paraphrase Obama himself, ready to vote for a "divided soul, the ghostly image of the tragic mulatto trapped between two worlds to be their president". But they did. And the rest, as they say, is black and white history.
