In terms of agency, pride and power, Michelle Obama's foothold in our historical consciousness is like no other for Black women like me. I'm happy that her cookie won, but now I need her husband to do the same.
In the final days of the election, it's easy to forget that Americans unite around some very common themes. Michelle Obama and Ann Romney, given the positive media response to their speeches, hit at the heart of one of America's most important 'jobs,' namely raising children.
my interview with author and TIME Magazine editor Kate Betts left me feeling both thrilled and inspired. As soon as she got on the phone with me, I knew that I was going to get more than an interview -- I was going to receive an education in style and leadership.
Looking for the dead solid skinny on the upcoming presidential election? You've come to the right place. As a public service, we're going to tell you right here and now who wins this thing and why.

The Nation piece ultimately concludes that few if any truly significant changes have been made by the food industry as a result of Ms. Obama's program. But the fact that Ms. Obama can't (or won't) wage war with Big Food has never surprised me.
For a people who were barely recognized as full citizens with equal rights under the laws of the country they helped to build, it is a victory, whether you are Obama supporter Reverend Al Sharpton or Romney advocate Herman Cain, that a black man now assumes the highest office in the land

The spa industry remains relentlessly apathetic and unapologetically uneducated in caring for the skin of 80 percent of the world's population.
