Jonathan J. Chawora, an African who is a British resident, had never heard of Barack Obama until the junior senator from Illinois campaigned to be the Democratic presidential candidate. When Obama clinched the nomination, Chawora became intrigued, and when Obama delivered his victory speech the morning after the election, he could not hold back tears as he heard the U.S.'s first black president pronounce his famous slogan: "Yes we can!" His respect only grew after Obama banned the use of torture by American forces, sought to shut down Guantanamo Bay Prison, and pledged his commitment to fighting terrorism throughout the world. Through it all, Obama was calm under pressure and served as an example to future leaders. Even when he had to respond to Islamic State attacks, Brexit, the Ukrainian crisis, or the Syrian conflict, he kept his composure. Join the author and examine the lasting legacy of one of the greatest presidents the United States of America has ever had with this book.
