The rock of our family, the love of my life, the nation's next first lady-Michelle Obama.
Here is a journey that began more than a century ago with the death of a slave holder who left all of his property to relatives including a six-year-old girl named Malvinia valued at 475 dollars. She worked on a farm that grew wheat, corn and cotton living an unimaginable life of labour.
She was one of three slaves. There was a very small farm. It wasn't kind of the notion of aplantation that we have.
With so few slaves, Malvinia likely worked in the house and laboured in the field. As a teenager,she gave birth to a son with a white man.
The child is listed in this 1870 census as a "mulatto", the term used to describe a person of mixed race. His name was Dolphus Shields,Michelle Obama's great-great-grandfather. Many families have stories like Mrs Obama did about white ancestors.
This is a good memory of him.
Shields grew up a free man and became a carpenter. Barbie Helld was his informally adopted daughter.
He was just a beautiful person, full of love.
Three generations later, Marian Shields Robinson would give birth to little Michelle. In Mrs Obama Holt sees Shields.
三代以后，Marian Shields Robinson生下米歇尔。在奥巴马夫人身上，Holt看到了Shields的影子。
She seems to be a very loving person, and so was he. And they were just a good match.
A family that went from slavery in the south to the halls of the White House.
It's just an amazing journey.
