Michelle Obama

On May 17, her second keynote speech of the season, First Lady Michelle Obama rallied Bowie State University seniors to reach their goals through purposeful action. "Please reject the slander that says a Black child with a book is trying to act white. In short, be an example of excellence for the next generation," she said. (Photo: Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)
