Renegades: Born in the USA is a candid, revealing, and entertaining dialogue between President Barack Obama and legendary musician Bruce Springsteen that explores everything from their origin stories and career-defining moments to our country's polarized politics and the growing distance between the American Dream and the American reality. Filled with full-color photographs and rare archival material, it is a compelling and beautifully illustrated portrait of two outsiders--one Black and one white--looking for a way to connect their unconventional searches for meaning, identity, and community with the American story itself. It includes:
- Exclusive new material from the Renegades podcast recording sessions
- Obama's never-before-seen annotated speeches, including his "Remarks at the 50th Anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery Marches"
- Springsteen's handwritten lyrics for songs spanning his 50-year-long career
- Rare and exclusive photographs from the authors' personal archives
- Historical photographs and documents that provide rich visual context for their conversation
