Prepping for a big day tomorrow, we imagine. Per the Chicago Sun Times, First Lady Mrs. O will host a series of events tomorrow in celebration of Women's History Month. Twenty one women including a star-studded cast of Alicia Keyes, Sheryl Crow, Debbie Allen, Bobbi Brown, Dominique Dawes, Fran Drescher, Phylicia Rashad, Alfre Woodard and Kerry Washington will join the First Lady in visiting schools and speaking to students in the Washington, DC community tomorrow.
The focus of the talks will be on the students' career goals and their achieving dreams. Later the group will return to the White House for an evening dinner and entertainment. In other news, the Council of Fashion Designers of America announced yesterday that First Lady Mrs. O will be honored with the Board of Directors Special Tribute Award at the June 15 gala this summer.
