Anacostia Tearful Graduation Speech

In June, First Lady Michelle Obama delivered an emotional commencement address to graduates of Washington D.C.’s Anacostia High School. During her speech she talked about the sacrifices her parents made for her and her brother. In addition, she offered them encouragement in the face of adversity. “Perhaps there were those who wanted to write you off, maybe because of assumptions they made about you or your school or your community. But every day you're proving them wrong.”
