Before his political career, Barack Obama served as a civil-rights lawyer . Barack Obama takes the oath of office from Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts as he becomes the 44th President of the United States.

Before his political career, Barack Obama served as a civil-rights lawyer, community organizer, and teacher. In 2009, he won the Nobel Peace Prize, is also the winner of the 2006 and 2008 Grammy Awards, Time’s Person of the Year in 2008 and 2012. Later, in the book Dreams from My Father Obama wrote he knew his father only from the mother’s and grandparents’ stories. In 1965, next year after the divorce, Ann Dunham married Lolo Soetoro. Obama acted immediately to get the . economy back on track.

Nordin told The Greenville News that Brooke's political career shows independence from the GOP. "He didn't follow the party line," said Nordin. He refused to support Barry Goldwater in 1964 and Richard Nixon's Supreme Court nominees with a racist past.

In 2008, American history was forever changed with the election of Barack Obama, the United States’ first African American president. However, Obama was far from the first African American to run for a public office or to face the complexities of race in a political campaign. For over a century, offices ranging from city mayor to state senator have been filled by African Americans, making race a factor in many elections. In From Edward Brooke to Barack Obama, Dennis S. Nordin navigates the history of biracial elections by examining the experiences of a variety of African American politicians from across the country, revealing how voters, both black and white, respond to the issue of race in an election.The idea to compare the African American political experience across several levels of office first occurred to Nordin as he was researching Arthur W. Mitchell’s 1934 congressional campaign. The question of white voter support was of particular significance, as was whether the continuation of that support depended upon his avoiding minority issues in office. To begin answering these questions and others, Nordin compares the experiences of eleven African American politicians. Taken from across the country to ensure a wide sample and accurate depiction of the subject, the case studies examined include Tom Bradley, mayor of Los Angeles; David Dinkins, mayor of New York; Freeman Bosley Jr., mayor of St. Louis; Senator Edward Brooke of Massachusetts; Senator Carol Moseley-Braun of Illinois; Governor L. Douglas Wilder of Virginia; and Representative J. C. Watts Jr. of Oklahoma, among others. As Nordin analyzes these individuals and their contribution to the whole, he concludes that biracial elections in the United States have yet to progress beyond race.From Edward Brooke to Barack Obama investigates the implications of race in politics, a highly relevant topic in today’s American society. It offers readers a chronological overview of the progress made over the last several decades as well as shows where there is room for growth in the political arena. By taking a pertinent topic for the era and placing it in the context of history, Nordin successfully chronicles the roles of race and race relations in American politics.
