Obama Music: Some Notes from a South Sider Abroad

by Bonnie Greer
£7.99   paperback  Legend Press Ltd (2009)

Obama Music: Some Notes from a South Sider Abroad by Bonnie Greer Through music Bonnie recalls the culture that influenced Obama’s call to presidency, the fight for equality by American educational institutions and her own experiences growing up on the South Side of Chicago. The book describes the difficulties and opportunities faced by African Americans from the 1950s and describes the changing atmosphere of America in the years leading up to the inauguration of America’s first black president.
 
Obama Music is an interpretation of Obama through the culture and music that he chose to make his base. The book speaks about hip-hop, country, classical, rock and roll, all of which were heard on Inauguration Day. The book also covers blues, gospel, soul and jazz, especially from the golden eras, when the people of the South Side began to build the great institutions, and the great solidarity, that enabled Barack Obama to become the most powerful person in the world.
