The biography emphasizes her background and achievements in addition to her focus on the importance of her husband and family. Michelle Obama’s profile as a compassionate, committed First Lady with a vision of equality and justice for all emerges clearly. As the first black American First Lady, Michelle Obama will automatically make history, but this brief biography clarifies the true heart of her amazing contribution.
