THE BREAKTHROUGH Politics and Race in the Age of Obama

by | Read by Gwen Ifill

Contemporary Culture • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

The public television news commentator’s book about politics in "the age of Obama" has little to say about Barack Obama himself. Rather, this is a survey of other African-American politicians prominent during the years of President Obama's rise to power. The host of “Washington Week In Review” and moderator of the 2008 vice presidential debate gives listeners a high-energy presentation that is easy to follow. Her discussion focuses on the congressional representatives, mayors, and rising stars who make up the current generation of black politicians. Her stories are about people, their perceptions, and their expectations. Ifill’s great warmth, clear voice, and uncommon insights are sure to keep listeners engaged.
