'I want our young people to know that they matter, that they belong. So don't be afraid. You hear me, young people? Don't be afraid. Be focused. Be determined. Be hopeful. be empowered. Empower yourself with a good education. Then get out there and use that education to build a country worthy of your boundless promise. Lead by example, with hope; never fear.' Michelle Obama.

Award-winning photographer Callie Shell presents an intimate and moving portrait of Barack and Michelle Obama and the presidency that made history.

This unique look behind the curtains follows the journey from the Obama's family home in Chicago to the most powerful house in the United States with a collection of over one hundred photographs, each combined with inspiring and revealing quotations from Michelle and Barack that reveal their warmth, compassion and unending commitment to service.
