Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama hosted a Black History Month event in the White House yesterday.

Her mother and daughters joined as she spoke in front of 6th and 7th graders about the importance of Black History, and how they can make a difference.

Although she was pleased with how knowledgeable the children were when it came to history, she also asked them to “think about the extraordinary people who live in your own world.”

Who inspires you?
