When history is written, First Lady Michelle Obama will loom large as one of the single most positive influences on legacy, of the Obama Presidency. Prescient editor and writer Veronica Chambers invited a range of people to give voice to the cultural meaning of Michelle Obama in The Meaning of Michelle: 16 Writers on the Iconic First Lady and How Her Journey Inspires Our Own. Chambers, along with contributors Damon Young, editor-in-chief of VerySmartBrothas.com and Rebecca Carroll, producer of special projects on race at WNYC, will share and discuss their essays on the eve of the next presidential inauguration. Award-winning journalist Caroline Clarke will moderate the discussion.
A book signing will follow.
