On Saturday, the First Lady hosted a special event to discuss the importance of education for young people across the world. The First Lady and MTV Base VJ Sizwe Dhlomo joined students in South Africa for a virtual discussion with young people in cities around the U.S.
First Lady Michelle Obama reflects on a visit to Robben Island -- which from the 1960s through the 1990s, housed a maximum security prison. Many of the prisoners there were activists, including Nelson Mandela, who worked to bring down Apartheid, the South African government’s policies that discriminated against people of color.
On Thursday, with a strong bipartisan vote, the Senate passed an immigration reform bill, bringing us a critical step closer to fixing our broken immigration system. President Obama congratulated the passage of the Senate’s bill, which is largely consistent with the President’s key principles for commonsense reform.
