Our ex-first Lady had joined the advisory board for the National Museum of African American History and Culture. According to their website; the board’s focus is to raise money for the yet-to-be-built museum. Congressed pledged to provide half of the money ($500 milion) if the other half could be raised by private donations. I think this is awesome!

Other Council members include Oprah Winfrey, Robert Johnson of BET, Merrill Lynch CEO E. Stanley O’Neal, and Brown President Ruth J. Simmons.
