First Lady Obama arrived in Pretoria late on Monday for what officials say is her first major solo overseas trip as US first lady, to South Africa and Botswana.
The first lady took her daughters, Malia and Sasha, and her mother, Marian Robinson for the trip focusing on young women leaders and the legacy of the anti-apartheid struggle.
Mrs Obama will visit a daycare centre in Johannesburg this afternoon and tour the Apartheid Museum, which chronicles the history of the struggle against white-minority rule. She will also visit Cape Town and the Botswana capital Gaborone.
So powerful!!! Our First Lady who is African-American is going to Africa!!!
