This book offers an examination of the signature weapon of Barack Obama's presidency: his speeches. It provides an in-depth, analytical look at the words of Barack Obama through the social and cultural contexts that made the content of his speeches timeless. The book draws on the oral tradition of the Black church in order to help explain aspects of the president's speaking style and to establish a direct link between the president's words and actions.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In a presidential era marked by irreverent and ill-conceived tweets, post-truth politics and oratory mishaps we need a dose of The Oral Presidency of Barack Obama! Neal reminds us of what we are missing with his thoughtful analysis of the speeches of Barack Obama. -- Erika D. Gault, University of Arizona
Dr. Neal's love for writing, history, and politics are combined in this must-read book that takes the reader back in time to the present day-a journey that reviews history, the impact of certain actions in history, and how those actions impacted our country and the presidency of Barack Obama. The detailed review of Obama's life timeline gives you a front seat on who he was, what he struggled with, and what he brought to the Presidency. This well documented and researched book gives you a glimpse into what it took to keep hope alive and to have Obama become President. This book leaves you thinking what will it take to heal our past as a country. -- Rubina F. Malik, Morehouse College
