Barack Obama…Harper’s Bazaar

Barack Obama

As the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama broke major ground by being the first African-American man to be elected to the position. Obama served from January 20, 2009, to January 20, 2017.

He was made to be the scapegoat for many issues plaguing American society and many initiatives he formulated has been reversed and completely done away with in the current administration.

Nevertheless, Obama has never broken a sweat. He continues to serve the people by assisting his sister for the launch of her sports and training center.  After he concludes the visit to his ancestral home of Kenya, he will jet set to South Africa where he will deliver a speech commemorating the 100th anniversary of the birth of Nelson Mandela and meet 200 youth that are members of the Obama Foundation’s leadership program.

Obama continues to inspire the youth by releasing recommended books to read and writing books on relevant topics that resonate with many African-Americans in the U.S.
