Our first lady will be speaking at an institution synonymous with black women for centuries: Spelman college.

The graduating class of 500 students will listen to the first lady speak at their commencement on May 18.

“In a personal address, the first lady will discuss her upbringing, and the significance of being part of the first generation in her family to graduate from college,” a White House source told theGrio. “She will also encourage the graduates to continue to serve their communities, embrace the challenges ahead of them, and strive to fulfill their ambitious goals.”
