Michelle Obama has accepted honorary membership in Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Update: as you can imagine, I was really excited when I sent off this post (blogging via Blackberry is dangerous, y'all). But here's what actually went down. At the Public Meeting, our Centennial International President Barbara McKinzie announced that Sen. Obama received an award -- the Anna Eleanor Roosevelt Medallion of Honor. Barack wasn't able to attend, so he wrote a letter, which she read to the room. In it, he thanked the sorority for the award, and then said something to the effect of, "and Michelle is honored to have been selected as an honorary member of Alpha Kappa Alpha." And the room went wild. If you know me, or have read this blog for some time, you'll know that I adore Michelle. She's the one who brought me to Barack. And not to get all corny and vomit-inducing on ya, but she is, to me, everything a woman (and an AKA, by extension) can be.
