On November 4, 2008 Barack Obama was elected the 44th President of the United States (POTUS), and he was the first African American to hold this office. Consequently, there have been merchandising efforts that depict his likeliness, and that of his family. In this post we review 100+ Obama themed merchandise from black owned brands (e.g., tee-shirts, handbags, lapel pins, and home goods). If you are one of the many millions of people who admire the 44th POTUS, check out the company and product links below.
The Obama/Biden ticket won the popular vote by more than 9 million, and had well above the 270 electoral votes needed to win. President Obama’s many accomplishments during his eight year tenure left the United States in better shape than when he took office. His achievements include expanding access to health care via his signature Affordable Care Act, rebounding the economy from the Great Recession, increasing consumer protections (e.g., in education, food safety, and lending), supporting and redressing civil rights (e.g., in housing, immigration, criminal justice, and agriculture). Furthermore, Barack Obama has been the most admired person in the United States for 10 years in a row according to Gallup polling.
