Overview

Barack Obama is one of the most famous presidents in the history of the United States. But before he was a household name, he was a young man from Hawaii who had no interest in politics.

This is the story of Barack Obama's journey from young bibliophile to seasoned Democrat stepping into the White House, and his exploration of how the voices of others shaped him. Here, you can see how Obama understood himself as a representative for the American people - and how he still believes in the possibility of America.
