Obama’s Young Mother Abroad

20 Apr

This article is about Barack Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham Soetoro.

This is a very good, in-depth article about Mrs. Soetoro. The author, Janny Scott, obviously put in a lot of work and conducted many interviews.

The article outlines Mrs. Soetoro’s life from the time she became pregnant at 17 in 1960’s Hawaii until her death at 52. I love the fact the author focused more on Mrs. Soetoro than on her son. Almost everything you see lately focuses on him even if the author claims to be talking about his family.

It is a very good article and well worth the 15-20 minute read.
