No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


This book examines how school-aged children and youth in the United States, Sierra Leone, West Africa, Jamaica, China, and Russia made meaning of the election of Barack Obama as the first African American President of the United States. The book is developed from an international research study exploring how school-aged youth understood Obama's messages.  The book further examines whether youth believed race relations in their country or human relations in the world might change as a result of this historic election. Children made vibrant drawings of "what President Obama means to me," revealing their innermost thoughts and secrets about their lives, their futures, and the United States.  Youth also revealed how they learned about Obama, including their surprising one word impressions of him.  The rich contents of the book, the issues it raises, and the insights it provides will offer readers a unique opportunity to look into the minds of the future generation around the world.
