The Bridge Summary

The Bridge by David Remnick

"I'm here because somebody marched. I'm here because you all sacrificed for me. I stand on the shoulders of giants. I thank the Moses generation; but we've got to remember, now, that Joshua still had a job to do ... There are still battles that need to be fought; some rivers that need to be crossed ... The previous generation, the Moses generation, pointed the way. They took us 90% of the way there. We still got that 10% in order to cross over to the other side. So the question, I guess, that I have today is what's called of us in this Joshua generation? What do we do in order to fulfill that legacy; to fulfill the obligations and the debt that we owe to those who allowed us to be here today?"

[From Obama's speech in Selma, Alabama in March of 2007]

This book, Remnick's first full length work of non-fiction since the bestselling King of the World, will tell the story of race in the history of America through the prism of the country's first mixed-race president; a man elected against the odds, symbol of hope for many, inheritor of a nation in the throes of a catastrophic crisis of identity.
