The Footsteps of Barack Obama outlines the incredible life journey of Barack Obama. It begins with his ancestral connections in Africa, follows through his exotic childhood in Indonesia, where he was known as Barry Soetoro, winds back in Hawaii living with his maternal grandparents during a period of unusual social unrest in America. Obama then makes history at Harvard Law School and begins to break through racial barriers with his inspirational oratory. He chooses Chicago, his home, as a community organizer serving the urban poor and eyes the power of politics to effect change. He enters politics, which brings his vision to a national-level audience. His vision stirred the soul of America and, as a result, a young US Senator from Illinois gets elected president in 2008 and 2012. How did he do it against all odds? The story turns to the nation that offered this unique opportunity and how Obama played his political cards. It discusses the context of a nation's dark historical chapter of slavery. Against the gloomy historical backdrop, he found a silver lining and made the best use of it. This book praises America's democracy under its enduring founding documents. It explains America's democracy and its standing as the market of the world and a champion of charity. This book is about America's majestic experiments in democracy personified in the election of the first African American president.
