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."

The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)
