9781926780061: Through Children's Eyes: President Obama and the Future Generation

This book examines how school-aged children and youth in the United States, Sierra Leone, West Africa, Jamaica, China, and Russia made meaning of the election of Barack Obama as the first African American President of the United States. The book is developed from an international research study exploring how school-aged youth understood Obama's messages.  The book further examines whether youth believed race relations in their country or human relations in the world might change as a result of this historic election. Children made vibrant drawings of "what President Obama means to me," revealing their innermost thoughts and secrets about their lives, their futures, and the United States.  Youth also revealed how they learned about Obama, including their surprising one word impressions of him.  The rich contents of the book, the issues it raises, and the insights it provides will offer readers a unique opportunity to look into the minds of the future generation around the world.

Review:

In this important new book a group of respected researchers make children the subject of a smart inquiry into the current political and racial environment. No other text asks and answers these critical questions ."
~Melissa Harris-Perry, Professor at Tulane University, and host of "Melissa Harris-Perry"
on MSNBC, USA

"Through Children's Eyes documents the effect of Barack Obama's 2008 election on
school-aged children globally.  The book is highly recommended for readers interested in the effect of the Obama  presidency beyond the United States.
Greta Olson, Professor at Institut für Anglistik, Justus-Liebig-Universitat, Giessen, Germany

The authors masterfully organize children's prose and art to give a rare glimpse at how
current events will shape tomorrow. The book embodies the landscape
of a new world."
Ivory A. Toldson, Senior Research Analyst for the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, and Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of  Negro Education, USA

The election of President Obama in 2008 was a historic moment for our diverse
democracy. This book is an excellent start for our much-needed dialogue. The voices of the next generation show how far we have come and how far they will take us."
~Frank H. Wu, Chancellor and Dean of the Hastings College of the Law, University of
California, US
