Michelle: In America, Someone Whose Ancestor Was a Slave Can Go to the Best Schools
"We live in a country where a girl like me from the south side of Chicago, whose great-great-grandfather was a slave can go to some of the finest universities on Earth. We live in a country where biracial kid from Hawaii named Barack Obama, the son of a single mother, can become president, a country that has always been a beacon for people who have come to our shores and poured their backbreaking hard work into what has made America great. That is what has made America great. Do not ever forget it."
