“A crucial book for our precious children. Don't miss it!” —Dr. Cornel West, professor, Princeton University, and author, Race Matters
From the Back Cover
Children must be empowered to know for sure that they can change the world. Charisse has captured this incredible moment in history by writing a book that allows young people to see themselves in President Obama. To me and so many others, Barack Obama represents intelligence, judgment, courage and service. Yet, the power in I Am Barack Obama is not in Barack himself. The power, instead, is in each and every child who finds their purpose and manifests a new destiny through Barack's example.
--Hill Harper, Author/Actor/Activist and Harvard Law schoolmate of Carney-Nunes and President Obama
