Judi McLeod, Editor and award winning journalist of the Canadian Free Press, has assembled this family album (passed on by Poland-based journalist and CFP columnist David Dastych). Thanks Judi, we owe you a debt of gratitude. And thanks Obama for these words of unity and post-racial harmony. This would be a wonderful spread for People magazine.

(Including brother Abongo ‘Roy’ Obama who is a Luo activist and a ‘Militant Muslim’ who argues that the black man must ‘liberate himself from the poisoning influences of European culture.’ ) ‘Abongo’s new lifestyle has left him lean and clear-eyed, and at the wedding, he looked so dignified in his black African gown with white trim and matching cap that some of our guests mistook him for my father,’ Obama wrote in Dreams From My Father.
