President and Mrs. Obama Greet Visitors - Sister with Obama Fabric!
Today's Washington Post newspaper includes a story about the Open House hosted by President and Mrs. Obama at the White House. Ordinary folks were welcomed to a tour and met the First Couple. I wish you could see the print edition of the newspaper - the photo taken by Larry Downing, a Reuters senior staff photographer assigned to the White House - includes an unidentified woman shaking hands with Mrs. Obama. She's wearing a wrap featuring Obama fabric from East Africa. How wonderful! Larry Downing took the photo here. Larry, if you happen to read the Black Threads blog (big smile!), how can we see your photo showing the fabric clearly? You know, the one in today's Post! UPDATE: Just learned the woman wearing the Obama Khanga fabric is Beverly Bezeokoli, formerly of Tanzania. Enjoy!
