As President Obama begins his final weeks in office, EBONY.com is remembering the Commander-in-Chief with a series that takes a look at the last eight years of his White House tenure. We’ll be examining the difficult moments along with the lighthearted ones and hopefully give everyone something they’ll be able to hold onto.
Here we’ve collected photographs of the president simply engaging with children. Sometimes his own, sometimes yours, but always sincere.
