Barack Obama became the first African American President when he was elected in 2008. It was the intention of the Constitution framers that we would be more than just Americans who have wealth or are connected to their families. Subject to the prejudices of their time—many of them owned slaves—most would not have foreseen an African American president. Obama’s father, Barack Sr., a Kenyan economist, met his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, when both were students in Hawaii, where Barack was born on August 4, 1961. They later divorced, and Barack’s mother married a man from Indonesia, where he had spent his early childhood. After fifth grade, he went back to Honolulu where he lived with his grandparents. He also attended Punahou School for scholarship. [2]
