After eight years of the Obama administration, black Americans grew accustomed to having a beautiful black family as the most significant figures in politics. This year, former first lady Michelle Obama's journey to the White House will be chronicled in her memoir Becoming Michelle Obama.
Obama's rise as a Chicago lawyer to the first lady has made her a national icon for black girls everywhere. She has spearheaded diversity initiatives as FLOTUS, celebrated black girl magic and pushed back on the toxic ideologies that prevent American society from progressing forward.
Not only was she the first black FLOTUS, she was the one of the most educated. Obama is a graduate of Princeton University and Harvard Law School.
In her memoir, "Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her — from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address," according to the official site.
The book will detail her disappointments and triumphs during the eight years she was in the public spotlight. Additionally, there will also be little-known details about her life revealed in the book.
"Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations — and whose story inspires us to do the same," according to the book's site.
For fans, there will certainly be a wait, its release date isn't until Nov. 13.
