President Barack Obama is heading into his last months as President after eight years in office. His historic presidency has changed the way the world views America, politics, Black men and families and during his tenure, he’s been able to revitalize a sagging economy, correct mandatory sentencing abuses with a record number of prison sentence commutations, as well as provide universal health insurance, among other stellar accomplishments. No matter how history ultimately views his legacy, one of the initiatives closest to his heart is “My Brother’s Keeper,” a program aimed at improving the outcomes for young men of color.
To date, the initiative has raised millions through the support of major corporations. On his way out of the White House, the President has an important mission – to help get out the vote next week so that the positive momentum of the last eight years won’t be in vain. He’s been open about his disdain for Donald Trump, the Republican nominee, along with his support for another historic nominee – Hillary Clinton – who he famously beat out for the Democratic nomination eight years ago.
