The former first lady opens up to journalist Miles Marshall Lewis about her passions, trials and tribulations as today’s most accomplished custodian of female empowerment and philanthropy, while sharing her journey toward completing her first memoir, Becoming.

“You learn to be grateful for what you have. You learn to find the good in things. From our vantage point as Black women, we spend a lot of time looking upward,” Mrs. Obama says during her in-depth interview.

Michelle Obama talks about her upbringing in Chicago and her time as an Ivy School leaguer at Princeton, before entering the White House with her husband—both of whom lead the Entertainment & Arts category as honorees in this year’s EBONY Power 100 List. Michelle gives a candid account about her decision to not run as a politician and why politics is simply not her cup of tea. Also featured in this issue is an exclusive and effervescent fashion photo shoot with the cast of Pose, the dance musical drama on FX. A striking and colorful eight-page spread for the New Year shows a stylish cast from the series, which includes Billy Porter, Dominique Jackson, Mj Rodriguez, Ryan Jamaal Swain, Indya Moore and Dyllón Burnside—all captured in their own playful mood.

“I cannot think of a better way to end the year than with a uniquely revealing and eloquently candid interview with one of today’s foremost pioneers of social indoctrination and women’s empowerment,” says EBONY Media Operations CEO Michael Gibson. “After reading our in-depth interview, it will undoubtedly give you the urge to buy Michelle’s first memoir. Giving this winter’s must-see issue a stunning contrast is the rather bubbly photo shoot with the colorful cast of Pose—whose individual characters come to life in our exclusive fashion editorial. We may even be lucky enough to see members of the cast at this year’s EBONY Power 100 Gala.”

The 2018 EBONY Power 100 List recognizes the most influential and inspiring from the business, philanthropic, entertainment and social activism communities in the following eight categories: Community Crusaders, Disruptors, Entertainment & Arts, Entrepreneurs, Innovators, MVPs, Power Players and the coveted Women Up. Honorees are celebrated each year at the EBONY Power 100 Gala, presented by Nationwide. The event will take place Nov. 30 at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, hosted by Chris Tucker. During the gala, the prestigious EBONY Power 100 special award recipients will be recognized for their contributions to business and industry. Gibson will present the inaugural Chairman’s Award to former BET Chairman and CEO Debra Lee. This year’s prestigious EBONY Icon Award will be presented to Motown Records. The Gala is hosted by EBONY Foundation and benefits the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America.
