AMERICAN TAPESTRY : THE STORY OF THE BLACK WHITE AND MULTIRACIAL ANCESTORS OF MICHELLE OBAMA

By Rachel. L. Swarns.  The book just came out, copyright 2012, and I just got my copy.  I'll let you know more about this book soon. 

The inner pages are lined with our First Lady's Michelle Robinson Obama's family tree: some of the surnames include Cohen, Shields, Easley, Johnson,  Lawson, Jumper, Wade, and Moten...

The author, Rachel L. Swarns is a New York Times reporter who covered the presidential campaigns and is the Johannesburg burea chief...  I can hardly wait to pick up the crackers and cheese on the way home from the bookstore...  I'll be reading so I won't be cooking!
