President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama Cover the ‘Special Collector’s’ Issue of Essence Magazine


With two terms almost served, in January 2017, we say our farewells to the Obama’s.

President Barack Obama broke many barriers when he became the first African American president of the United States.

He, and his beautiful, fun-spirited First Lady, started many initiatives for the American people and have created a legacy that will last forever.

In a interview with Essence, the Obama’s discuss memories in the White House and their legacy.

Check out some excerpts from the interview:

When asked about memories in the White House, here’s what President Obama had to say:

The memories that last ultimately aren’t the family memories, some of my fondest memories of the White House are just being with the girls on a summer night and walking the dogs around the South Lawn, talking and listening to them, trying to get Bo to move because sometimes it’s hot.”

Michelle Obama speaks on the legacy and the inititatives she and the President created when it comes to inspiring kids:

“I think when it comes to Black kids, it means something for them to have spent most of their life seeing the family in the White House look like them. It matters. All the future work that Barack talked about, I think over these last few years, we’ve kind of knocked the ceiling of limitation off the roofs of many young kids; imaginations of what’s possible for them. And as a mother, I wouldn’t underestimate how important that is, having that vision that you can really do anything—not because somebody told you, but because you’ve seen and experienced it. I think that will be a lasting impact on our kids.”
