First Lady Michelle Obama is the cover on the new issue of Time Magazine. “There are thousands of Michelle and Barack Obamas all over this nation,” Mrs. Obama told the newsweekly.

Michelle Obama And Jill Biden Spend Afternoon Volunteering At DC Food Bank

via HuffPost

WASHINGTON — First Lady Michelle Obama is making good on her promise to actively volunteer in the Washington area, bagging food for hungry children at a local food bank on her husband’s 100th day in office.michelle-obama-food-bank-large

Mrs. Obama and Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden, joined more than 100 congressional spouses at the Capital Area Food Bank on Wednesday, passing out packages of wheat pasta and cans of pineapple as volunteers bagged 2,000 meals for low-income kids in the area.

This is the second time the first lady has volunteered for the hungry in the District of Columbia. In March, she served lunch to the homeless at a soup kitchen.

The event was sponsored by the food bank and Feeding America, a hunger relief group.

The First Lady’s wax figure was unveiled Tuesday, alongside the replica of President Barack Obama!

Michelle Obama‘s life-like figure is on display at Madame Tussauds in Washington D.C.

The First Lady’s replica is dressed in Michelle Obama’s classic, elegant style — donning a cherry-red, knee-length belted dress and cardigan.

Back-to-Back “Black” Women on Cover of Vogue

via TransRacial

Perhaps it’s the economy. Or call it the Andre effect.  But a thaw appears to be in process over at icy-cold Conde Nast.

It’s the second sistah in a row! Right after Michele Obama’s magical March cover.  And only the sixth Black woman on a Vogue cover this decade.                                                                                   beyoncevogueapril

That stat stands in sharp contrast with the legacy of the now-defunct Men’s Vogue, which regularly had Black men such as Denzel Washington, Will Smith, President Obama (twice) and Tiger Woods on its covers.


Beyonce’s Vogue appearance is a welcome step towards progress indeed.

Transracial has not personally prowled through the archives at Conde Nast’s 4 Times Square HQ, but we are beyond sure that this is the first time EVER back-to-back Black women have appeared on Vogue covers.

Keep it up!

Anna — yes you can!

Michelle’s wax counterpart was designed at Merlin Studios in London, and will be placed alongside President Barack Obama’s figure in a replica Oval Office.

Michelle Obama’s Slave Ancestors Discovered


via Black Christian News

Tiny wooden cabins line the dirt road once known as Slave Street as it winds through Friendfield Plantation. More than 200 slaves lived in the whitewashed shacks in the early 1800s, and some of their descendants remained for more than 100 years after the Civil War.

The last tenants abandoned the hovels about 30 years ago, and even they would have struggled to imagine a distant daughter of the plantation one day calling the White House home.

But a historical line can be drawn from these Low Country cabins to Michelle Obama, charting an American family’s improbable journey through slavery, segregation, the civil-rights movement and a historic presidential election.

Their documented passage begins with Jim Robinson, Michelle Obama’s great-great-grandfather, who was born about 1850 and lived as a slave, at least until the Civil War, on the sprawling rice plantation. Records show he remained on the estate after the war, working as a sharecropper and living in the old slave quarters with his wife, Louiser, and their children. He could neither read nor write, according to the 1880 census. Continue reading

Michelle Speaks on First Lady Duties


via Times Online

By Michelle Obama

A few weeks ago at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, I shared with the nation some of the many reasons why I believed my husband would be an extraordinary president. It was the biggest speech I’d ever given. When I was finished, I headed backstage with my daughters. They turned to me, breathless with excitement.

“Mom,” Malia, our ten-year-old, said. “We have something important to tell you. We need to have a sleepover!”

That snapped me out of speech mode, with the bright lights and applause, and back into the role I love: Mom. The next night, 15 giggling girls – my daughters, the Biden granddaughters, and friends – took over our hotel room.

Now that Barack has been elected president, it will be an honour to be First Lady. I will work daily on the issues closest to my heart: helping working women and families, particularly military families. But, as my girls reminded me in Denver, even as First Lady, my No 1 job is still to be Mom. At 7 and 10, our daughters are young. My first priority will be to ensure they stay grounded and healthy, with normal childhoods – including homework, chores, dance, and soccer. Continue reading

Republicans Seek To Demonize Michelle…

Okay the Republicans are gearing up for this fall election with a plan to try and paint Michelle Obama with a filthy brush. Instead of the issues, their plan is to do the most gangster thing possible-go after Barack’s wife. These Republicans need to be put in front of a firing squad for continously using negativity to scare Americans into following their plans. Read some of what they are planning:

It’s good news for Obama that Hillary’s out of the race. But it’s also bad news. Now Republicans can turn their full attention to demonizing Michelle Obama. Mrs. Obama is the new, unwilling contestant in Round Two of the sulfurous national game of “Kill the witch.”

There are some who think it will be harder for America to accept a black first lady — the national hostess who serenely presides over the White House Christmas festivities and the Easter egg roll — than a black president.
