Michelle Obama perhaps the most iconic black woman in the world is visiting Africa, Southern Africa to South African and Botswana. This is an official visit where she will be accompanied by US First daughters Malia and Sasha. This visit is symbolic because this is the first time that an African American US First Lady is visiting the continent to talk to the youth and inspire them to make the continent better for themselves not just to wait for aid from the States but to take their future into their own hands. We hope that her visit will highlight the Africa that is overlooked.
Here is what she said in London we are anticipating her Africa trip! Viva Africa & America!
