After graduating from Harvard Law, Michelle Robinson went to work for a law firm in her native Chicago. Her work was not challenging enough, she told her supervisors, who assigned her an associate to mentor. His name was Barack Obama. He wanted to date her. She wasn’t sure.

Michelle’s story did not begin when she fell for Barack. But a world’s view of black love and family in America finds its origin in that moment. A champion of education for girls and women and a game-changer for nutrition in public schools, Michelle continues the legacy she left.
