From Sophia A. Nelson on HuffPo:

In the last two and a half months, Mrs. Obama has had the unique opportunity to single-handedly correct and contradict a litany of tired stereotypes about black women. She has do it by showing how to successfully hold down a career and nurture a family at the same time; by being beautiful and compassionate. By showing that we not what people tell us we are — loud, angry, intimidating, overbearing, etc. We are not a group of women who shake their booties on BET videos and who have their babies out of wedlock with various different men as the fathers.
