Harvard Law School professor Charles Ogletree, a mentor of President Obama when he attended the school, will teach a course next year called “Understanding Obama.”

As first reported by the Daily Caller, the law school course will “focus on the way in which race, religion, and politics have impacted the development of President Obama as a leader.” Ogletree, who also taught Michelle Obama at Harvard, has long been a strong supporter of Obama and his political career.

“They’ll be reading both critical and positive issues about Obama — of what’s happened, in terms of the way that race and religion have been viewed during his candidacy, his presidency, and how it affects the larger country; and some other classic reading on issues of law and justice,” Ogletree told the Daily Caller, in describing the course.
