    Abstract

    This research outlines the leadership of a character of an African American president, Allan Trumbull, and how he handles his power as the president of the United States despite the color of his skin, black, in a movie entitled Olympus Has Fallen (2013). The movie is an American film that portrays an African American President as the man behind the successful operation to save the Olympus (i.e. The White House) from the terrorist. The finding shows that the film provides a representation of an African American who possesses leadership qualities to be a president of a multicultural country. Moreover, it is a different type of leadership from the Civil Rights Movement era. The film also depicts how the U.S. Constitution works towards an African American politician. Keywords: African American, president of the United States, leadership, leadership quality, Olympus Has Fallen
