Expanded audiobook edition of the widely praised collection of letters to Michelle Obama by African American women


Passionate, shattering, and tender, this astonishing audiobook gathers together letters to Michelle Obama, written by African American and African women. Responding to a call from the Uncrowned Queens Institute in Buffalo, New York, hundreds of African American women shared their hopes, fears, and advice with the First Lady. Their letters and poems signal an unprecedented moment in our nation's history and a remarkable opportunity for African Americsan women to look at the White House and see and speak to one of their own there.

This audiobook, read by the editors, is both unabridged and expanded. It contains all of the wonderfully personal and evocative letters and poems found in the original book. It also features ten new letters to Michelle Obama plus a never before seen or heard introduction by the editors.

Barbara A. Seals Nevergold and Peggy Brooks-Bertram are recipients of the 2009 Governor's Women of Excellence Award in Education. They ae confounders of the Uncrowned Queens Institute for Research and Education on Women, Inc. at University at Buffalo, State University of New York.

Produced and directed by WBFO in Buffalo, New York.
