In honor of President’s Day and Black History Month, we’re thrilled to offer HBO’s three-part documentary, Obama: In Pursuit of a More Perfect Union, for FREE from Monday, February 21 through Sunday, March 6.

The docu-series 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.

Through a recently launched virtual screening tour for the docu-series, Kunhardt Film Foundation is working closely with schools and local non-profit organizations to support online, in person or hybrid screenings and action-oriented conversations about civic engagement, uplifting Black candidates and candidates of color, and activating youth networks to get out the vote.
