And then, her grandfather, who was also named Frasier Robinson, picked up and moved north, in his case to Chicago, with the Great Migration along with millions of other African Americans, and settled on the South Side of Chicago, which is a large portion of the city.

I wanted to like this book a lot more than I did. Similarly, Mundy's account of the strain Barack's political ambitions have placed on his family may seem revelatory, unless one has read his book, The Audacity of Hope, in which he writes about this topic extensively. She is a woman whose friends, and they are many, love and passionately defend her, in part because she is herself such a loyal and committed friend to them.

There was also one part of the book I didn't agree with, and it was something about what Michelle said on the campaign trail and the author's criticism of that.
