Escape to The Mecca

First Lady Michelle Obama and BET's host of 106 and Park Bow Wow joined a group of juniors and seniors from Chicago public high schools for the first day of a four-day tour of Howard University or, as the annual trip is known, "Escape to the Mecca." In addition to making their way around the campus, they also participated in a town hall style meeting. "How you approach your education is really still within your hands," she said, urging the students to aim high.   Joyce Jones (@BETpolitichick)
