Dreams from My Father, Obamas speech


This powerfully moving memoir was published by Barack Obama nine years before he ran for Senate and thirteen years before he ran for president of the United States. When it was reissued in 2004, it became a #1 New York Times bestseller. Obama's struggle to comprehend the forces that shaped him as the son of a black African father and a white American mother is the subject of Dreams from My Father. This struggle takes him from the heartland of the United States to the ancestral home of his great-aunt in the tiny African village of Alego.
