American Tapestry: The Story of the Black, White, and Multiracial Ancestors of Michelle Obama explores the First Lady’s family roots and recounts an extraordinary yet quintessentially American story spanning five generations--from slavery to the White House. Long time correspondent for The New York Times, Rachel L. Swarns delivers a well researched portrait of the First Lady's ancestors, and reveals for the first time the identity of Mrs. Obama's white great-great-great-grandfather—a man who remained hidden in her lineage for more than a century. Schomburg Director Khalil Gibran Muhammad will be in conversation with Swarns.
Following all Word Rapport programs, attendees will have the opportunity to purchase the participants’ books and have them signed.
