Michelle Obama Honors Black History Month

Michelle Obama invited 200 schoolchildren into the East Room of the White House yesterday to celebrate Black History Month. While she was impressed with the students' knowledge of black history, she encouraged them to look beyond the names in history books to the people in their day-to-day lives, like parents, teachers, and grandparents.

The all-female a cappella ensemble, Sweet Honey in the Rock, performed to the cheering group, which included the first lady's daughters, Sasha and Malia, and mother, Marian Robinson.
