From planting vegetable seeds in the back yard of the what first lady Michelle Obama calls "the peoples house", to planting images of a beautiful black woman who has intellect and down to earth sensibilities. One can see the her embrace of the Queen of England is just as sincere as she embraces her grandmother-in-law from Kenya.
At last our black women will be respected with the respect that is due a Queen.

With each one reaching one and teaching one the exponential effect is incalculable.
