New Letters and Survey, Go, Tell Michelle

The mid-term election of 2010 has raised our concerns about the up-coming presidential election and is also the mid-point of the Obama administration. It is an opportune time for Black women to, once again, express their thoughts, feelings, concerns to Michelle Obama. The deadline for letters to Michelle, book 2 has been extended to March 1, 2011. We are also asking that you complete a survey, regardless of whether you intend to submit a letter. More information and the survey are available at our webpage: Go, Tell Michelle, Book 2

Writing To Michelle Obama

We are in sunny San Diego today, getting ready for the performance of "Go, Tell Michelle" by Mo'Olelo Performing Arts Company and the Women's Museum of California this evening. This morning we had a great interview with Maureen Cavanaugh of KPBS Radio. Listen to our conversation, hot off the airwaves! Many thanks to Maureen, Angela and Seema. Here we are with Maureen, in studio.

More to come, see video on YouTube.

San Diego Weather

The weather is lovely here in San Diego. You can sleep with the windows open--and hope nothing flies in--and it is cool and comfortable. The days are lovely and sunny with just a slight breeze. We hope that any of the sisters from the Go, Tell Michelle Sisterhood Network who are in California and who can make it to the theatre tonight will have a chance to come. That would be doubly exciting. Peggy
