The former literary agent for Barack Obama, Acton & Dystel, released a promotional booklet published in 1991 that features Obama in it with a photo and a biography. The biography from the booklet, which can be read further down in this post, described Obama as being “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.”

The booklet was handed out to ‘business colleagues’ within the publishing industry and it has the biographies of 89 other authors who are clients of Acton & Dystel. The booklet helps to promote the first book from Obama, Journeys in Black and White, which Obama decided not to publish. He instead then published Dreams from My Father.

The biography of Obama from the booklet reads as follows:

“Barack Obama, the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.  The son of an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister, he attended Columbia University and worked as a financial journalist and editor for Business International Corporation.   He served as project coordinator in Harlem for the New York Public Interest Research Group, and was Executive Director of the Developing Communities Project in Chicago’s South Side. His commitment to social and racial issues will be evident in his first book, Journeys in Black and White.”
