The Obama family legacy is one that will live on in the hearts of millions around the world for years to come and ESSENCE is continuing in our celebration of the nation’s most beloved first family with an exclusive collector’s edition book.

ESSENCE has followed the remarkable journey of the Obamas since before the historic 8-year presidency and we are proud to present a collection of intimate, empowering moments from their tenure. Featuring 96 pages of some of the most memorable White House moments from President Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, daughters Sasha and Malia and even the adorable “first dogs” Sunny and Bo, The Obamas: The White House Years provides a beautifully illustrated first-hand look at their time at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

“It’s all here,” ESSENCE Editor-in-Chief Vanessa K. De Luca says. “The historic moments, the invite-only events, the interactions with extraordinary everyday people and world leaders, the couple’s individual initiatives aimed at strengthening families and communities, and the blossoming of two future leaders — Sasha and Malia — before our vey eyes. The Obamas have earned a special place in our hearts and in our homes. Looking back at every great moment — spectacular and intimate — you will appreciate why we will forever celebrate this once-in-a-lifetime moment for our nation and the world.”

The Obamas: The White House Years is available now on newsstands nationwide and Amazon.
