Product Description
<p>A remarkable history of First Lady Michelle Obama’s mixed ancestry, <em>American Tapestry</em> by Rachel L. Swarns is nothing less than a breathtaking and expansive portrait of America itself.</p><p>In this extraordinary feat of genealogical research—in the tradition of <em>The Hemmingses of Monticello </em>and <em>Slaves in the Family</em>—author Swarns, a respected Washington-based reporter for the <em>New York Times</em>, tells the fascinating and hitherto untold story of Ms. Obama’s black, white, and multiracial ancestors; a history that the First Lady herself did not know.</p><p>At once epic, provocative, and inspiring, <em>American Tapestry</em> is more than a true family saga; it is an illuminating mirror in which we may all see ourselves.</p>
