Essence Magazine Salutes FLOTUS Michelle Obama With Special Commemorative Book

By Posted on 0 1 m read

Right on the heels of the re-election of President Barack Obama, ESSENCE Magazine is immortalizing the life of our first First Lady of color in a way that’s truly worthy of Presidential recognition.

A Salute to Michelle Obama documents Mrs. Obama’s life from the South Side of Chicago to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. This lavishly illustrated title also explores the social, cultural and political impact of the First Lady’s education, health, and military family initiatives; her national and international causes and campaigns, and her broad fashion sense that connects with both Seventh Avenue and Main Street. This is Essence’s third print production honoring the First Family, and much like the others (The Obama’s in the White House: Reflections on Family, Faith and Leadership; The Obama’s Portrait of America’s New First Family) this new effort will include never before seen photo’s of the First Lady and her interactions in the White House, with the President and with the First Family.

The book also features an introduction by ESSENCE Editor-in-chief Constance C.R. White , as well as moving tributes from prolific author Dr. Maya Angelou , life coach Iyanla Vanzant and “First Grandmother” Marian Robinson . A Salute to Michelle Obama is available now in retailer’s nationwide. Will you be copping a copy?
