The book is written in letter form to his daughters and mentions iconic American figures like Billie Holiday, Helen Keller, Cesar Chavez, Neil Armstrong, Martin Luther King Jr., and Abraham Lincoln. “Have I told you that you are creative?” Obama asks, before mentioning painter Georgia O’Keeffe, who “helped us see big beauty in what was small.” He then talks about Albert Einstein, who “turned pictures in his mind into great advances in science.” Also described is Jackie Robinson, the pioneering black major league baseball player, who “showed us all how to turn fear to respect and respect to love.”
