In the Foreword, Jim Wallis, the founder of Sojourners magazine, captures the essence of that meaning in one simple quote, “The election of Barack Obama to the Presidency of the United States was a fundamental blow to white supremacy—a black man in the highest office of the land and the most powerful position in the world. That was and will always be the greatest legacy of the Obama presidency—a historic moment in the longstanding and ongoing movement to undo white supremacy and privilege. This historic moment challenged and threatened all the ways original sin still lingers.” In the second foreword of the book, James Forbes, Jr. suggests that the presidency of Barack Obama was a “prophetic revelation of who we really are and what we must do if we are to become a truly democratic republic”. Forbes says, “We were being given the opportunity to discover how deep white supremacy is and how much work has to be done to move us into the full reality of being the land of the free and home of the brave.” Mr. President, compiled by Reverend Darryl D. Sims, a doctoral candidate with Union Institute & University, a publisher, and nationally known spiritual coach who along with Dr. Barbara Williams-Skinner, President of Skinner Leadership Institute, compiled the collection of perspectives in honor of the Obama years. The book presents views of the Presidency from different religious perspectives and ideas on what needs to be done to preserve the President's legacy. Williams-Skinner, said: “There is no doubt that becoming the first black President of the United States of America has been Barack Obama's greatest legacy. His remarkable years in office have successfully delivered a significant blow to the negative stereotypes of the African American male.”
