On her new Tumblr, Beyonce posted a handwritten letter to First Lady Michelle Obama. In the letter, Beyonce gushes about how proud she is of the First Lady for being the “ultimate example of a truly strong African American woman” and how FLOTUS is a perfect role model for her own daughter.
Beyonce isn’t alone in her love of the First Lady but apparently she missed “First Lady Michelle Obama Appreciation Day” that we had here at Feministing back in February. I’m sure Beyonce just skipped a day of reading our site because she was so busy in preparation for the arrival of her daughter Blue Ivy.
Michelle Obama embodies so much progress in public representations of African American women. Her style and grace under the intense media scrutiny is something to marvel at. Beyonce surely isn’t the first to notice just how awesome our First Lady is and I’m sure she won’t be the last. Check out the letter below:
