Michelle Obama

It's hard to contemplate that people are still holding racist views in this day and age, but it's even harder to imagine that the first black First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, is still at the receiving end of such views even after eight years of representing the nation.

Unfortunately, that's the nature of Michelle's career, and in her first public appearance since leaving the White House she spoke about how hurtful the prejudice has been for her. She was at the Pepsi Center in Denver on Tuesday night (July 25th 2017) for the 30th anniversary of the Women's Foundation of Colorado where she was being interviewed by WFCO President and CEO Lauren Casteel.

Maya Angelou Michelle Obama Oprah Winfrey

The US Postal Service’s attempt to commemorate the late author and civil rights activist Maya Angelou has ended in farce, after a postage stamp bearing her image contained a quotation that was, in fact, attributed to somebody else.

However, though these words are associated with her they were not actually written by Angelou, but instead by Joan Walsh Anglund in her 1967 book of poetry ‘A Cup of Sun’, with the “it” on the stamp changed from a “he”.
