flotusnews 5/25#FirstLady #Michelle #Obama echoes #DrKing, who in his #commencement address encouraged 1965 #OberlinCollege graduates to not "sleep through the #civilrights #revolution" of that time #FLOTUS said the "great moments in our #history are not decades in our past" #MrsObama continued, "Because it is absolutely still possible to make a difference." In 1835 #Oberlin was the first #college in #America to admit #AfricanAmerican students and the first #coedschool to grant bachelor’s degrees to women #flotusnews 5d

flotusnews 5/25#FirstLady #Michelle #Obama receives #honorarydoctorate, delivers the #commencement address at #OberlinCollege #FLOTUS encouraged the 2015 #graduates to "run to and not away from the noise" saying, "Today, I want to urge you to actively seek out the most contentious, polarized, gridlocked places you can find because so often throughout our history, those have been the places where progress really happens." #MrsObama also stressed the importance of being involved in #civiclife, "Get out and vote in every single election. Make sure the folks that represent you share your values and aspirations," #MrsO said #flotusnews 5d
  •   dtskidsbooks MaryJane Patterson's legacy (First African-American woman to graduate from a college in the U.S.) . I did a paper on her in graduate school. Please check out my children's book 'Daddy's Twins & Our Veggies' my 5 year olds are the co-authors. We sent a copy to @first_obama and got a lovely package back. #health #nutrition #love #d'authors @flotusnews 5d
  •   dtskidsbooks Pardon typos lol... Thanks. I promise my kids books are edited. 5d
  •   emilythebaker @flotusnews she wasn't the commencement speaker. Only an honorary guest speaker. 5d
  •   nature_vibesz Haha true that! @emilythebaker #DjEuterpE 5d
  •   iheartsorority @emilythebaker Who was the speaker? What a tough act to compete for attention with. I attend 20 or so grads a season and even the best speakers work hard for attention! 4d
  •   emilythebaker @iheartsorority Marian Wright Edelman. She is the founder and president of the Children's Defense Fund. She had my full attention, but yes once Michelle spoke more than half of the people attending left. It was as if they all forgot there was still a commencement. 3d
  •   iheartsorority Sorry to hear that. It is my experience that commencement addresses are some of the most kind, well thought out, use full and motivational speeches I've heard. They are odd speeches often very personal. It speaks to how we feel about the road through the rite of passage each graduate under took. I know it sounds a bit over thinking, but my job keeps me constantly thinking about the academic experiences of our culture. I am a photographer and sales representative for #GradImages and #UniversityPhoto 3d

flotusnews #fbf#FirstLady #Michelle #Obama spoke at #Tuskegee University last weekend #FLOTUS spoke candidly about race and of how she was criticized for being "too loud or too angry or too emasculating" or "too soft, too much of a mom—not enough of a career woman", as well as her first #magazine cover #MrsObama said "I realized that if I wanted to keep my sanity and not let others define me, there was only one thing I could do, and that was to have faith in God’s plan for me. I had to ignore all of the noise and be true to myself—and the rest would work itself out." #flotusnews 2w

flotusnews 5/15If #FirstLady #Michelle #Obama decided to run for #president in #2016, #FLOTUS would pose the most significant threat and be #HillaryClinton's strongest #rival in #winning the #Democratic #nomination, according to a new #Rasmussen telephone #poll of 1,000 likely #voters A #Hillary-#MichelleObama #DreamTicket has also been floated in recent years but #MrsObama has previously dismissed suggestions that she will run for #political office when her husband leaves the #WhiteHouse Should she change her mind? #flotusnews 2w
