The Passion Profit Co. publishes The Obama Legacy We-Write of the Greatest American Presidency
Anticipating a media whitewash and re-write of Obama's significance, author crowd funds a people's "we-write" of 44th presidency and administration's achievements
"A 'we-write' is simply history written by we the people," explains Goodridge, founder of the Obama Legacy We-Write Book Project. "More often than not, history has been a "re-write" by those with their own agenda. Obama is one of the world's greatest statesmen--with a poise, grace, and intelligence unmatched in modern American politics. He's had major accomplishments that have been under-reported for various reasons, including the reality that America simply has not had experience humanizing and glorifying black male achievements. We can't allow pundits, politicians and producers to determine how we and our children remember this presidency. We have to take action before that happens."
Goodridge cites among the 300, universal health care, the demise of Osama Bin Laden, gay rights, female supreme court justices, improved US-Cuba relations, the Nobel Peace Prize and troop withdrawal as positives that, even in light of the negatives (drone strikes, deportations, corporate wrist slaps and Guantanamo) as evidence his successes to correct historical inequalities, improve access to wealth and health, and sustain the environment, distinguish this presidency as one of, if not, the greatest ever.
"This book is about documenting a legacy not just for us adults, but for our children and those not alive or too young to appreciate this historic presidency,"
