Publisher's Summary

Homeland is the remarkable memoir of George Obama, the youngest son of the Obama clan and President Obama's Kenyan half-brother.
The father that the brothers shared was as elusive a figure for George as he had been for Barack Obama; he died when George was six months old and George was raised by his mother and stepfather. But after his mother and stepfather separated, he drifted into gangs and petty crime. Arrested for robbery, restless, willful, and troubled, he lost himself in Nairobi's vast Mathare ghetto. After being framed for an armed robbery he did not commit and spending time in jail, he represented himself at trial and won the case. Vowing to turn his life around, he finished his education and set up the George Hussein Obama Homeland Foundation to help street kids overcome the miseries surrounding them.
George Obama's story describes his unique struggles with family, tribe, inheritance, and redemption and the seminal influence his brother had on his own future.
