Michelle Obama's family saga is a remarkable American story—a journey from slavery to the White House in five generations. American Tapestry: The Story of the Black, White, and Multiracial Ancestors of Michelle Obama traces the tale of Mrs. Obama's ancestors, a history that the First Lady did not even know herself. RACHEL L. SWARNS, a New York Times correspondent, brings into focus the First Lady's black, white, and multiracial forebears. A book signing will follow her Forum.
