O Magazine interview

1 Nov, 2004

Obama discusses writing his memoir, Dreams from My Father, in an interview for O Magazine. 

I had the opportunity. When I was elected president of the Harvard Law Review, people were willing to give me money to write. That’s a huge luxury. I thought I had something interesting to say about how our cultures collide as the world shrinks. My family’s story captures some of the tensions and evolution and crosscurrents of race, both in this country and around the globe.
