Fresh off recent appearances on BET Honors and the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, first lady Michelle Obama will be speaking at a fundraiser at the Kentucky Center for African American Heritage on Thursday, and the local community is abuzz. Michelle OBama is popular among African American women. Do you think she will be a transforming figure as relates to the role of women in the black church? If you are from Louisville, do you think her visit will spur economic growth for the struggling Kentucky Center for African American Heritage and adjacent West Louisville community? One of her platforms is childhood obesity. What other subjects would you like to see her address on her visit to Louisville, the home of Jesus Saves Ministries?Here is a sampling of what the first lady has said in the book, Michelle Obama In Her Own Words:
About her husband, President Obama:
"I told him if this isn't leading to marriage, then, you know, don't waste by time." Page 44.
"You want to know how Barack prepares for a debate? He hangs out with me, and he's ready." Page 49.
"He's not just going to tell you what you think you want to hear." Page 78.
"Barack is one of the few men I've met who is not intimidated by strong women. He relishes the fact that I'm not impressed by him." Page 74.
"He's a gifted man, but in the end, he's just a man." Page 75.
The book, Michelle Obama In Her Own Words, edited by Lisa Rogak is on the Black History Give-Away List in the Celebrating Black History Group this week on the Jesus Saves Social Network!
