The election of Barack Obama as the first black president of the United States was an undeniable milestone in American history. But according to author Michael Eric Dyson, Obama’s presidency has been marked by a constant struggle between political pragmatism and a desire to be an ally to people of color. In his new book “The Black Presidency,” Dyson examines President Obama’s relationship with race and how it has influenced his time in office.
