Barack Obama – Black History Month

by | Feb 14, 2020

Barack Obama is a politician who served as the first African-American President of the USA from 2009 to 2017. He attended Harvard Law School, in 1983 and became the first black president of the Harvard Law Review. After being elected as President, he signed many landmark bills into law including repealing the existing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy which had prevented gay, lesbian and bisexuals to openly serve in the US Armed Forces. He repeatedly promoted inclusiveness for LGBTQ+ Americans; under Barack, in 2015 same-sex marriage was legalised in all US states. During his Presidential term, the Obama Administration created over 11 million jobs for US citizens. Barack was extremely focused on improving living standards and rights, and brought in the Affordable Care Act to ensure all Americans had access to healthcare. Since leaving the White House, he has been extremely vocal in a number of events, including his involvement with the Black Lives Matter activists, and rallies to end gun violence in schools. Barack continues to use his platform to promote equality and tolerance, not only in the US, but throughout the world.
