“We gotta march, we gotta protest and we have to vote. Young people are starting to put those pieces together and understand that, you know, it’s not either/or. It’s all of it,” Obama said, and that includes her daughters. “Who they are right now is enough. I always have wanted them to start practising the power of their voices very early on.”




“I know there are many, many Amanda Gormans,” she said of the National Youth Poet Laureate. “I’m just proud when one of ’em gets a chance to be seen and the rest of the nation and the world gets to see… a lot of Black folks have made this country what it is today.”




Obama, 57, also touched on her book and the inauguration of U.S. President Joe Biden and Vice-President Kamala Harris.
