The Audacity of Hope

Then-Illinois State Senator Barack Obama delivers an inspiring keynote address at the Democratic National Convention, in Boston, Massachusetts, that echoes the themes presented in his second book, ‘The Audacity of Hope.’ Now President Barack Obama, the speech still resonates as a powerfully optimistic view of democracy and a refreshing take on the hope that America can offer.

Drawing on his own experience, President Barack Obama relates the “unlikely” occurrence of him being on stage based on the hard work of his father that brought him from Kenya to America to study, where his parents would meet. He discusses his pride for his diverse heritage, which, as he says, “would not be possible in any other country.”

President Barack Obama discusses his parents’ choice to give him an African name because, “in a tolerant America, your name is no barrier to success.” This moving address offers a much-needed revitalized view of opportunity and acceptance in America.
