On Monday evening, Oprah Winfrey (aka my auntie in my head) sat down with the First Lady for their final one-on-one interview in the White House. In First Lady Michelle Obama Says Farewell to the White House — An Oprah Winfrey Special, our FLOTUS spoke with Winfrey in the White House private residence. The intimate interview gave us all insight into Michelle's past eight years in the White House, her triumphs, her disappointments, and what she plans to do next.
For us, it was all about the #Chickspiration. To say that both of these women embody our ideas of strength, tenacity, dedication, and humility would be an understatement. So, we paid close attention to each word last night and compiled a brief list of our favorite talking points from Michelle Obama's last television interview as our FLOTUS. We miss you already Mrs. O.

On The 'Angry Black Woman' Narrative Forced Upon Her By Mainstream Media
