The astonishing story of Barack Obama''s Kenyan roots, "The Obamas" is the product of dozens of interviews with Obama''s African relatives, presented by the first person to trace Obama''s family history back 400 years and 23 generations. 12 b&w photos.
From the Publisher:
Draws on dozens of interviews with the 44th president's African relatives to trace Obama's heritage back to the "cradleland" of the southern Sudan tribe, describing his ancestors' first encounters with Europeans and their role in the fight for Kenyan independence.
This sweeping epic chronicles 700 years of African history and 23 prior generations of Barack Obama's family--who were once part of the Sudan's Luo tribe and who later spread out and gradually moved 600 miles into Kenya, changing lifestyles through the centuries as they interacted with radically different environments. The author traveled through the region to interview members of the Obama clan, gleaning meticulously detailed information including surprising, unpublished facets of Obama's father's and grandfather's lives. As Barack Obama was sworn in as President of the United States in January 2009, a hundred relatives gathered around a wheelbarrow-delivered television set under the trees in the Kobama village in Kenya to observe the inauguration.
