Full Description

He was the nation's first African-American president; he passed the nation's first comprehensive health care insurance; and before he served a full year in office, he had already won the Nobel Peace Prize. Some looked on him as the standard bearer of a new, more-inclusive America; but he also evoked harsh criticism and visceral dislike among those who claimed he was a traitor, a socialist and not even American by birth. Join historian and the creator of the popular History of the Presidents series, JB Andersen, for a look at the accomplishments and the complicated ongoing legacy of President Barack Obama.

Presented in partnership with the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute of the University of Minnesota. This program is funded by the Friends of the Ramsey County Libraries.
