We Are the Change We Seek
E.J. Dionne Jr., Jr., Joy-Ann Reid
‘Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change we seek’
In his speeches as president, Barack Obama had the power to move people from all over the world as few leaders before him. We Are the Change We Seek is a collection of twenty-seven of Obama’s greatest speeches, covering the issues most important to our time: war, inequality, race relations, gun violence and human rights. With brief introductory remarks explaining the context for each speech, this is a book to inform, illuminate and inspire, providing invaluable insight into a groundbreaking and era-defining presidency.
A thoughtfully chosen selection ... We see Obama in hope-mongering high style; we see him negotiating tricky questions with forensic intelligence; we see him on the attack and we see him in grief ... Excellent -- Sam Leith * Observer * We have been given the first partial, though still substantive, look at Obama's words, and it is a political partisan's dream to see them so finely gathered here * Washington Post *
