Becoming Barack

41min | 2009
This is the story of BECOMING BARACK - a future president - years before he was a public figure. Starting with his early days as a Chicago organizer in the 1980's and the early 1990's. Becoming Barack offers new details about how his identity evolved and his leadership skills developed. Even during this early period in his career, a vision of hope for "the world as it should be" shone brightly. But along the way, he realized that gaining power was the most certain path toward helping to assure change.

I am disappointed that the film's producers chose to rewrite history by completely excluding the profound influence that the Black churches of Chicago had on shaping the thinking of Barack Obama. This is exactly how history, especially Black history has been distorted for centuries.

Just like Neil Armstrong showed that young minds can achieve any feat, President Obama showed young black kids that they too can achieve anything.

Becoming Barack is a dope introspective...view this documentary to get a 41-minute glimpse into the years leading up to President Obama's 2008 election.

And saying that politicians are like Jesus at all is actually really stupid. The "political worship" that happened in 2008 won't happen this year.

very good insight! what also happened with GWB. We should not look to any man, only God can do what they expect from this president.
