Michelle Obama

In a Washington Post piece published Monday, January 23, Krissah Thompson and Vanessa Williams wrote that “African American women see their own challenges mirrored in Michelle Obama’s.” The article references a nationwide survey conducted by The Washington Post and the Kaiser Family Foundation with indications that black women strongly relate to the first lady. 

Thompson and Williams write, “Nearly nine in 10 black women say that the first lady understands their problems…and nearly nine in 10 black women say she shares their values.”
