African Identity, Self and Other, in Obama's "Dreams from My Father"
Heikal, Azza Ahmed; Aziz, Heba Mohamed Abdel
Advances in Language and Literary Studies, v7 n1 p248-252 Feb 2016
This paper is a close examination of postcolonial and postmodern 20th century discourse with reference to Obama's "Dreams from My Father" (1995). Barack Hussein Obama (1961-present) has a colonial experience and double cultural background which formulate his views of racial discrimination, make him accept racial differences and dream of uniting the divided colors one day. The study focuses on his autobiographical narrative within the framework of post-colonialism and postmodernism.
