About

President Obama has slow-jammed the news with Jimmy Fallon, freestyled with Lin-Manuel Miranda on the White House lawn, sung Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” at the Apollo Theater, rebuilt the White House tennis lawn into a basketball court, and recast the “In Performance at the White House” series with a dynamic list of some of today’s top African-American artists, including Common, John Legend, Usher, Esperanza Spalding, Gary Clark, Jr., and more. Along the way, President Obama has shifted the possibilities of how the standing president intersects with current events. This collection will offer a robust gathering of works that illuminate this new intersection between American politics and popular culture.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
