The "courage and determination (of Obama) to fight for the cause you cherish, as a student, as a community organiser and as a Senator," is detailed in the book, Vaiko told Obama, the release said.

The release added that the book also "describes the persecution and tragedies to which the African-Americans were subjected to more than two centuries."
