THE OBAMA FAMILY:A FAMILY OF ESSENCE

[CLICK TO ENLARGE ALL IMAGES]
Essence magazine caught up with the Obamas in their Chicago home to talk about politics,race in America and family life. According to Essence:

“For one year we tried to get the entire Obama family on our cover. The protective mother and father were always reluctant and said no. Finally, we got yes and ESSENCE became the only Black publication allowed a glimpse into the Obamas’ spacious Chicago home. In this collector’s edition that hits newsstands now, just before the Democratic National Convention in Denver, ESSENCE captures Michelle, Barack and their two daughters[Malia,10, and Sasha,7] at home. And veteran journalist Gwen Ifill catches up with the Obamas on the road, where they discuss family life, criticism of Michelle, and reaction to Barack’s controversial comments about Black men.”
