HISTORIAN: MICHELLE OBAMA’S FAMILY TREE PROVES THAT “WE’VE ALL MINGLED”
President Barack Obama, first lady Michelle Obama ,and their children Sasha,8, and Malia,11, walked across Pennsylvania Ave as they headed back to the White House after leaving St. John’s Church in Washington, on Sunday, Oct. 11, 2009.
Meanwhile, the New York Times has traced the first lady’s ancestry back through five generations and found that the first lady’s great-great-great-grandmother was a slave and that her great-great-great grandfather was a white man.
“She is representative of how we have evolved and who we are,” historian Edward Ball said. “We are not separate tribes of Latinos and whites and blacks in America. … We’ve all mingled, and we have done so for generations.”
