Barack Obama Tickets
Barack Obama served as the 44th President of the United States from 2008-2016. He was also America's first president of African-American descent. Former President Obama is an acclaimed writer and currently shares his many experiences with a world audience through speaking engagements. Obama earned a law degree from Harvard University. He also became president of the Harvard Law Review while attending college there. After law school, Obama practiced civil rights law in Chicago and developed a strong reputation as a community organizer and advocate for the underprivileged. Obama's first autobiography, Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance, was published in 1995. The work was well-received by critics and even literary giants like Toni Morrison gave their praises. An audio version of Obama's autobiography earned him a Grammy in 2006 for Best Spoken Word Album.
The Improbable Journey
Barack Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. His father was a native of Kenya who was in Hawaii to attend college. His mother, Ann Dunham, was born on a military base in Witchita, Kan. The unlikely union did not last long, and the couple was divorced when Obama was 2 years old. Dunham met and married a University of Hawaii student from Indonesia a short time after and moved to that country with her new husband and young son. Dunham gave birth to Obama's younger sister once the family settled in Indonesia. For safety reasons, Dunham thought it best for her son to grow up in Hawaii and sent him to live with her parents. After high school, Obama completed his undergraduate studies at Columbia University before attending Harvard Law School. The advocacy work Obama performed in Chicago after law school led to a successful run at a state senate seat in 1996. In 2000, Obama was unsuccessful at an attempt to unseat incumbent Bobby Rush and join the House of Representatives. Four years later, he won a senate seat, and in another four years, he was president of the United States.
