Thank you for visiting the Go, Tell Michelle blog! All future postings regarding the book as well as updates about Peggy and Barbara can be viewed at their new blog, the GTM Sisterhood Network. Also visit the SUNY Press blog for news on the book and all other SUNY Press news and notes.


  1. Thanks for the work involved in putting this book together. It was donated to all Buffalo school libraries by the BTF.
    However, some in my building, myself included, wonder why there's a side photo of "our first lady," rather that a front photo. Many who first viewed the front cover of the book didn't realize it was Michelle Obama until they looked at the book more closely.
    I truly believe our first lady (first African American woman in the history of America) deserves a better photo than what is depicted on the front cover of the book.

  2. this is fabulous,inspiring, and so mcy more
    i will purchase a book for myself, my mother, and my granddaughters

  3. Thank you to the individuals who posted comments on this blog. I hope that you will visit our new blog at You'll find on-going updates about our work and we look forward to receiving your feedback.

  4. Last night, I viewed a re-broadcast of your book event at Busboys & Poets [C-SPAN 2]. I'm so happy to have found your blog.
    Your book of letters & poem speak to everyone. These Oral Histories continue the tradition of keeping African-American voices & wisdom alive.

    High praise for you all.
    I look forward to reading your book & being a follower of your blog (and, future projects)
