Dr. Ula Y.Taylor: "Black Women in American History and Culture: Michelle Obama" 

When: Sat., Feb. 25, 10 a.m. & 1 p.m. 2012

She's not just the president's wife, a Harvard- and Princeton-educated legal mind, or the owner of the most toned arms on the face of the planet. Michelle Obama is all of those, things, of course, but she also represents a distinct and important place in African-American women's history, a much-studied object lesson in how far our society has come and how far we still have to go. That's what American Studies PhD and UC Berkeley professor Ula Taylor discusses in her recent article "Michelle Obama: Too Black and Too Strong," and it's what she'll talk about at the African American Museum and Library at Oakland (659 14th St.) on Saturday, Feb. 25, as part of the library's Black History Month series. Consider it your patriotic duty. 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., free. 510-637-0200 or
