On August 4, 1961, Barack Hussein Obama II was born, in Hawaii. His parents, named Ann Dunham, achieved as college students at the University of Hawaii, a whitened American from Kansas, and Barack Obama, Sr., a black Kenyan learning in the United States. Obama’s father eventually left the family when Obama was 2 and, after further more studies at Harvard University, came back to Kenya, where he died in an vehicle car accident 19 years later.
After his mother and father separated, Obama’s mother wedded another overseas student at the University of Hawaii, Lolo Soetoro of Indonesia. From age six through ten, Obama lived with his mother and stepfather in Indonesia, where he attended Catholic and Muslim schools. “I was raised as an Indonesian child and a Hawaiian child and as a black child and as a white child,” Obama later recalled. “And so what I benefited from is a multiplicity of cultures that all fed me.” Here are the most memorable and moving pictures of the 44th president of the United States.
