AIRDATE | HBO delivers new 3-part documentary special OBAMA: IN PURSUIT OF A MORE PERFECT UNION

- ADVERTISEMENT -

OBAMA: IN PURSUIT OF A MORE PERFECT UNION chronicles the personal and political journey of President Barack Obama, as the country grapples with its racial history.

Weaving together conversations with colleagues, friends and critics, and interspersed with his own speeches and news interviews, the series begins with Obama’s childhood and takes us through his perspective as the son of a white mother from Kansas and an African father, his spiritual formation by a generation of Black leaders, and his hopes for a more inclusive America.

Through the story of one man irrevocably bound to the history of a country, OBAMA: IN PURSUIT OF A MORE PERFECT UNION reflects on the country’s past and present national identity. With the clarity of hindsight and perspective of the last four years, OBAMA: IN PURSUIT OF A MORE PERFECT UNION forms a cohesive picture of America under its first Black president.

Obama’s presidency was unique in America’s history, but what was a historic step forward for the country also exposed the ever-present need to address deeply entrenched challenges around race, racial justice and our history. OBAMA: IN PURSUIT OF A MORE PERFECT UNION encapsulates the man and the president, illuminating his vision for the nation shaped from his own experiences and identity.

Through today’s lens, the documentary reflects on the Obama administration with new understanding about the personal obstacles he faced and the challenging pursuit for equality in America.

OBAMA: IN PURSUIT OF A MORE PERFECT UNION is directed by Emmy® winner Peter Kunhardt (HBO’s “True Justice: Bryan Stevenson’s Fight For Equality,” “John McCain: For Whom the Bell Tolls”, “King in the Wilderness”).

OBAMA: IN PURSUIT OF A MORE PERFECT UNION premieres Sunday, September 5 at 8.30pm on FOX DOCOS and On Demand.
