Michelle Obama Quote Tote

$ 19.95


" When they go low, we go high," said former First Lady Michelle Obama.  Her challenge is ever more resonant today.

Our inspirational tote is imprinted with words of wisdom by Michelle Obama, "When they go low, we go high." These poignant words from Ms. Obama's speech at the July 25, 2016 Democratic National Convention, serve as a bridge to the history of great African American leaders who stood up and spoke out against injustice, giving back better than they got and not turning the other cheek.

In the White House Ms. Obama placed her family within the continuum of a black citizenry who countered suppression with hope by recalling "the story of generations of people who felt the lash of bondage, the shame of servitude, the sting of segregation, but who kept on striving and hoping and doing what needed to be done so that today I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves. And I watch my daughters, two beautiful, intelligent, black young women playing with their dogs on the White House lawn."
