Reading "A Singular Woman" - biography of pres. Obama's mom

It's very interesting. The author talked with Ralph Waldo Emmerson Dunham- Obama's great uncle. He said that they are distantly related to Jefferson Davis. What poetic justice!!
Aside from that, I am learning that their family is unusually well educated. The great uncle mentioned above has a PhD. in educational psychology. There are two aunts who studied Anthropology.
She also included a lot of interesting history about Kansas to provide some context. "To the stars through difficulties" is the KS state motto.
