Breaking News- with thanks to our journalist networks at GrameenFrance and YouthEuropeBanking

The premier of the film of Obama's mama - Anne Dunham - her heroic celebrations of microcredit in Indonesia in the 1980s, and the inauguration of womens world banking is now scheduled for the summer film festival in seattle

 31st May Obama Mama - 6:00 PM
Intelligent, progressive, and steadfastly brave, Barack Obama’s mother Stanley Ann Dunham (a lifelong globetrotter who spent her teenage years living in Mercer Island) pursued an unexpected and profound life.
Stanley Ann Dunham was more than the mother of the first black President of the United States of America. As an anthropologist with a Ph.D and as a lifelong globetrotter, her intelligence, progressive politics, and activism made for a profound life—one whose inspiration continues to resonate through her son, President Barack Obama. Through interviews with high school friends and colleagues, film clips, and archival footage, Obama Mama explores Dunham’s travels from small-town Kansas to Seattle, Hawaii, and Indonesia as well as her work in the Civil Rights and Feminist Movements, her dedication to raising awareness of global poverty, and her development of microcredit programs to address poverty in rural villages. Dunham is indirectly responsible for some of the greatest contributions to American and global history, especially Obama’s revolutionary health care bill. She died from cancer at the age of 52 – and had incurred several hundred dollars of unreimbursed health-care costs each month due to her cancer being considered a “pre-existing condition.” The “largeness of her heart,” as her son describes it, is the centerpiece of this inspiring documentary.
