FIRST AFRICAN-AMERICAN
FIRST LADY IN THE U.S.

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

Who was America's first African-American First Lady?

January 2009 saw many very historical changes for the United States. Of course, it began with the inauguration of the first African-American United States President, Barack Obama which also resulted in another title seeing historical prominence – that title of First Lady, which now saw the first African-American woman stepping into the role. That woman of course, was Michelle Obama who would quickly become scrutinized and loved by the American public.

Michelle Obama is the wife of the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama. She has held the title ever since her husband took the office of the Presidency on January 20, 2009. Michelle Obama grew up on the south side of Chicago and attended Princeton University and Harvard Law School. Once she had completed her schooling she returned to Chicago and accepted a position with Sidley Austin, a prominent law firm. It was while working here that she would meet her future husband, Barack Obama, who also worked at the firm.

When her husband first entered politics, and even when he first started on the campaign trail for the presidency, Michelle Obama wasn’t very interested in being on the campaign trail with him mostly because she thought she still needed to stay close to their two daughters, Malia Ann and Natasha, more commonly known as Sasha. Throughout the election process and preliminaries, Michelle’s role became more active and she became a regular face at fundraisers, door knocking along the trail, and even speaking at major events such as the Democratic National Convention. Michelle Obama is known for her public speaking appearances as being very honest and off-the-cuff as she often speaks without referring to any notes.

Just like her husband is often compared to John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Michelle Obama is often compared to Jacqueline Kennedy for her style sense. She has been seen on Vanity Fair’s list of best dressed people twice and her wardrobe is often the topic of many gossip columns and newspapers throughout the nation. Like most First Ladies, Michelle Obama is part of the American culture and is someone who is looked up to as a very prominent, and very historical, public figure.
