For Martin Luther King’s birthday will be honoring amazing black women who are involved in American politics this week. And what better gals to begin with: Michelle Obama and Stacey Abrams.
Michelle Obama – The wife and First Lady to our 44th President, Barack Obama, Michelle is a lawyer, author, and a gal from the south side of Chicago who also loves to garden. As First Lady her main initiatives were service members and their families, higher education, and international education for adolescent girls.
She graduated from Princeton, and Harvard Law. As a Chicago lawyer she met her future husband when he interned at her law firm. As a private citizen she continues her role working tirelessly for women, and is beloved by a majority of the American people.
Stacey Abrams is an American politician, lawyer, voting rights advocist, who served in the Georgia House of Representatives from 2007-2011, then as minority representative from 2011-2017. This 48 year old is also an author of several best selling fictions. A Yale law school graduate, she currently is running for Governor of Georgia, a post she lost under suspicious conditions by only several thousand votes in the last election.
