From Bestseller to the Netflix Screens
Michelle Obama’s Becoming
By: Caitlynn Bohanon
Michelle Obama’s 2018 memoir Becoming took the world by storm, becoming a #1 New York Times Bestseller, an Oprah’s Book Club pick, and even winning an NAACP Image Award. Obama used the two years since she and her family resided in the White House to share her story, all that she has learned, and teaches readers the importance of finding their voice.
“We can’t afford to wait for the world to be equal to start feeling seen” – Michelle Obama
Now we can experience Michelle Obama’s inspiring story via her new Netflix documentary, which focuses mainly on Obama’s 2018 book tour, where she not only interacted with big names such as Oprah, Reese Witherspoon, Gayle King, and more, but also held round table discussions with high school and young adult women around the country and the world. Obama shares not only her personal journey, but the journey of intelligent and ambitious women of color who are making their own strides to make the world a better place and to ensure their voices are heard.
Becoming is now streaming on Netflix. For more information about the Obama Foundation (run by Michelle and Barack Obama), including the Girls Opportunity Alliance, visit https://www.obama.org/mission/.
