ART STREIBER FOR VARIETY 

"Michelle LaVaughn Robinson, girl of the south side…” we adore you! Over the past eight years we have admired your eloquence, tenacity and grace; but most of all we appreciate the iconic role you have been for African American women as the first Black First Lady of the United States of America. Your passion for healthy living and educating our children speaks volumes about your character. Mrs. Obama, you have proven that Black women possess the strength, intelligence and dignity to be great, even in adversity. Not only have you stamped out “the angry Black woman” stereotype but you have inspired many and we are in awe. Thank you for being exactly what this country needed, a strong Black woman.

Signed,

A Girl of The Southside
