Obama's presidency represents a major milestone in black history and the struggle for political, economic and cultural equality in the United States. Through interviews with black intellectuals, leaders and activists BBC journalist Griffith connects the dots with past civil rights and black power struggles, and looks to the future of black civic and cultural life in the United States.

Interviewees are high profile. Includes: Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Van Jones, Michelle Alexander, Dr Julianne Malveaux, Ramona Africa, Dr Molefi Asante, & Dr. Vincent Harding.

The interviews included were recorded specifically for this book, and have not gone public. They will be used by the Pacifica stations (New York, LA, Bay Area, Houston & Washington DC) in Feb 2012 to promote the book.

How does this book compete with other titles on Obama? This book is specifically from an African American perspective and is part of a wider project to collect voices on this moment in US history beyond the usual newsmakers and opinion makers.
