The Barack Obama Poem

Collection of 10 classic poems and the debut of Egyptian-Sudanese-American author Kola Boof’s poem in honor of Barack Obama, entitled “God’s Hair.”

Written December 2008, “God’s Hair” is Kola Boof’s poem commemorating the election of Barack Obama. The Sudanese-born American author says: “I cried with joy when I voted for Obama–not just because I had campaigned so hard for him to be elected–but because he has the Proof; God’s Hair; African hair; nappy hair–the marker of the Black race on his head. As and African mother, that is one of the reasons I cried when I voted.”
