Beyonce writes open letter to Michelle Obama

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.

The Feministing Five: Zerlina Maxwell

If you haven’t noticed, we’ve had quite a few new additions to the Feministing crew over the past year. Zerlina Maxwell, who also writes for Ebony, The Grio and Loop 21, is one of these new contributors. When she’s not writing her amazing commentary on the presidential debates and much more for this site, she also attends law school at night.

Zerlina got into political writing after taking a leave of absence from law school and working on the Obama campaign in Virginia (which you’ll read more about in the interview below). She wanted to continue political work after the campaign so she started a blog with a few friends, attended Netroots Nation where she met some of ...
