Summary
Michelle Robinson Obama, a descendant of slaves and the first African-American first lady, was born into a tough neighborhood on Chicago's South Side. Michelle could easily have been swallowed up by the streets but she hit the books instead and made it to Princeton University and Harvard Law School. After graduating, she met a young law student named Barack Obama. They dated for three years, married, and had two daughters. Michelle, a devoted mother, has been called "the rock of our family" by Barack. While working hard and maintaining her own demanding career, Michelle has always stood behind her husband, helping to guide and support his ongoing political ambitions. When Barack ran for the United States Senate in 2004, Michelle stared down some young thugs who tried to disrupt a rally. When Barack gave an important speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, Michelle made sure he nailed it. After Barack won the presidency in 2008, Michelle has emerged as an important voice in the White House. Book jacket.
