    Michelle Obama on Race, First Female President, Her Bangs

    Two weeks before the 50th anniversary of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, first lady Michelle Obama says that having an African-American family in the White House “expands the scope of opportunity” for the next generation and has “absolutely” moved the needle when it comes to race in the United States.
    “Children born in the last eight years will only know an African-American man being president of the United States,” the first lady said in an interview with Parade Magazine. “That changes the bar for all of our children, regardless of their race, their sexual orientation, their gender.”
    The first lady made one thing crystal clear: She will not be running for that position or any other.
