FLOTUS Keynote Speech At CBCF-ALC Phoenix Awards Dinner

A little history was made Saturday night as First Lady Michelle Obama became the first FLOTUS ever to do a keynote address at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's Phoenix Awards Dinner.

The Phoenix Awards Dinner serves is the closing event for the CBC Foundation’s Annual Legislative Conference, and honors four individuals for their contributions in addressing challenges facing the African-American community.

In case you're wondering who won those awards this year, it was Attorney General Eric Holder, Congresswoman Corinne Brown (D-FL), former Charlotte Mayor Harvey Gantt, and filmmaker George Lucas.

While the TransGriot was inside I-495 when it happened a mere subway ride away from me, I didn't go to this start studded event.   Neither did President Obama, who did the Phoenix keynotes in 2009 and 2010 but had campaign events elsewhere this year. 

But enjoy the video of our First Lady's speech .   And here's the link to the prepared remarks.
