About This Book


"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for.  We are the change that we seek." —Barack Obama

Barack Obama grew up in a time when change was just beginning to come to black people in the United States.  He experienced an often difficult childhood, confusion over his own identity, and frustration when trying to help the victims of poverty and hopelessness.  But he never stopped believing that, in America, change for the better could happen.

A Dream Fulfilled: The Story of Barack Obama is about an inspirational man whose life shows us the value of hope, education, and hard work.  Obama's journey—from his unusual youth to his travels to Kenya in search of his father to Harvard Law School and, finally, to the White House—proves that dreams can indeed be fulfilled.
