Michelle Obama Talks Beauty at Maya Angelou’s Memorial
When FLOTUS took to the podium at Maya Angelou’s memorial on Saturday, a poignant, powerful speech was certainly expected. And Michelle Obama delivered.
Paying homage to the life of one of the world’s most motivational and iconic women, FLOTUS highlighted Angelou’s "PhenomenalWomen" and why the late poet's words on beauty are so important.
"The first time I read 'Phenomenal Woman' I was struck by how she celebrated black women's beauty like no one had ever dared before," Obama said. "Our curves, our stride, our strength, our grace. Her words were clever, and sassy. They were powerful and sexual and boastful. And in that one singular poem, Maya Angelous spoke to the essence of black women but she also graced us with an anthem for all women, a call for all of us to embrace our God-given beauty."
Good luck embracing that which doesn't exist in your case, FLOTUS Maximus. And ... what
“Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual – or at least that he ought not so to do; but rather he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.” Samuel Adams, April 16, 1781.
