President Barack Obama arrived in Nairobi, Kenya on Friday — his first trip as president to his father’s native country.
He’s the first sitting president to visit Kenya, though he’s been three times before. He last did so in 2006, as a senator from Illinois.
But his first trip came all the way back in 1987, when the president was in his 20s. These often unseen images show a young Barack visiting his family and learning about the village where a lot of his family still lives.
On November 4, 2008, more than 69.4 million Americans voted for then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-Illinois) to become the 44th president of the United States — and the first African-American to hold the position.
Obama, then 47, earned 365 electoral votes and nearly 53% of the popular vote in a wider-than-expected margin of victory. His Republican opponent, Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona), captured 173 electoral votes and a little more than 45% of the popular vote.
In honor of the seventh anniversary of Obama’s ascension to office, here are 44 images of his time as America’s commander in chief.
