On Monday, First Lady Michelle Obama took the stage at the Democratic National Convention to give an emotional endorsement of Hillary Clinton. “Leaders like Hillary Clinton,” said Obama, “who has the guts and the grace to keep coming back and putting those cracks in the highest and hardest glass ceiling, until she finally breaks through, lighting all of us along with her.”

“That is the story of this country, the story that has brought me to this stage tonight,” added Obama. “The story of generations of people who felt the lash of bondage, the shame of servitude, the sting of segregation, but kept on striving and hoping and doing what needed to be done so that today, every morning, I wake up in a house built by slaves.”
