Wh0 would believed that one year ago , this would be today's headline. As the saying goes, 'God Is Good." For the first time, in years of Black History Month celebrations we see a First Lady hosting and publicly acknowledging Black History Month at the White House.
For all children and black children in particular, it is important that they have a positive image of themselves and and their history. To hear Mrs. Obama say "This White House that you're in now was built by slaves and now America's president and the First Lady and our children live in this house," makes you pinch yourself in disbelief. As American's of all nationalities, it is important that our children know the major contributions we all had in the building of America. It is through this shared historical knowledge comes mutual respect and understanding.
The First Lady Believes All Child Should Have An Equal Opportunity.
Speaking of opportunity. We will see Mrs. Obama on the cover of next month's Vogue. Only the second time in this magazines history has a First Lady appeard on the cover. She truely personifies Black Is Beautiful. Hopefully this will pave the way for black models and designers to finally showcase their talent.
Especially since African American's spend over $45 billion on clothing annually.
