As part of a farewell media tour on her way out the White House, First Lady Michelle Obama will be conducting an interview with the Queen of All Media Oprah Winfrey later this month.
According to Ebony Magazine, Obama, 52, will be doing her final White House interview with Winfrey, 62, on television and it will be broadcasted twice. The production will be titled, ““First Lady Michelle Obama Says Farewell to the White House — An Oprah Winfrey Special.”
This interview is capturing what will be a very sentimental moment between two of the most powerful women in the world.
“The show will be produced by OWN Studios with Winfrey also serving as executive producer,” wrote Melissa Kimble, a columnist for Ebony Magazine.
“The dynamic duo will discuss the first family’s life in the White House, Mrs. Obama’s eight years as First Lady of the United States, and the legacy she’ll leave behind as well as her plans for the future,” Kimble continued.
Kimble’s December 5th article for Ebony admirably pointed out the grace Obama has shown during her years as First Lady despite the unnecessary racially-based criticism she has gotten for absolutely no other reason than the color of her skin.
“As the election cycle has run it’s course, we’ve seen our First Lady disrespected in multiple ways through multiple incidents. This special will be a tremendous display to the world of the power of Black women who respect, admire and uplift each other,” Kimble added.
Winfrey and Obama are also very good friends. It will be amazing to see the pair interact with one another on a national stage for the last time during Obama’s truly unique reign as the First Lady of the United States.
CBS will broadcast this vast media spectacle on December 19th at 8/7 p.m. CST. OWN will broadcast this historic interview on December 21st at 9/8 p.m. CST.
