Presidential Library: Barack Obama

Presidential Library:
Barack Obama

"See, the book's [Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness] not really about Africa. Or black people. It's about the man who wrote it. The European. The American...So I read the book to help me understand just what it is that makes white people so afraid. Their demons. The way ideas get twisted around. It helps me understand how people learn to hate."

—from Obama's memoir, Dreams from My Father
