He was the son of a Kenyan economist and a girl from Kansas, raised by white grandparents in a cramped two bedroom apartment in Hawaii, rebellious and worked at Baskin-Robbins. He was idealistic and wanted to make a difference while in college and after graduating. He was a law professor and struggled with his father's memory. As a senator, he preferred the power of hope and he is proof anyone can be president in the United States.

"Obama is the 11th great-grandson of John Punch, ... the first documented African to be enslaved for life in the American colonies," says Joseph Shumway, a genealogist at Ancestry.com.

...the president's white mother is a direct descendant of the first known slave in the American colonies through a family by the name of Bunch.

"We found that, through DNA testing done by members of the Bunch family, that their direct ancestors are of sub-Saharan African origin. ...

In 1640, John Punch, an African ... servant in Virginia ... escaped, was caught and sentenced to ... bondage to his master for life."
