In a statement, Mrs. Obama told Deadline reporters that she treasures the sense of connections made during the tour and that her experiences exemplified the commonalty many Americans share.
Those months I spent traveling - meeting and connecting with people in cities across the globe - drove home the idea that what we share in common is deep and real and can't be messed with. In groups large and small, young and old, unique and united, we came together and shared stories , filling those spaces with our joys, worries, and dreams. We processed the past and imagined a better future.
This documentary portrait of Lady Obama will premiere on Netflix May 6. Below is a first look trailer of "Becoming".
This Netflix original documentary is from the Obama's very own production company, Higher Ground Productions.
Former First Lady MichelleObama's memoir, "Becoming," was released in the fall of 2018 and quickly became the bestselling hardcover book of that year. To date, it has sold more than 10 million copies.
