CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM-CLEVELAND, Ohio-Michelle Obama, the first Black first lady of the United States of America and the wife of former president Barack Obama, the nation's first Black president, is saluted as a dynamic woman in American and world history as Cleveland women and Northeast, Ohio women join women across the country to celebrate the second anniversary of the historic women's march on Jan 20, 2018, the latter two groups of whom will gather for speeches at 10:30 am on Public Square in downtown Cleveland. (Editor's note: The march will go forward at noon, organizers said).


CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE FACEBOOK PAGE OF THE WOMEN'S MARCH 2018 EVENT ON CLEVELAND PUBLIC SQUARE AT 11 AM ON JANUARY 20


Last year's march in Cleveland, a majority Black major American, city, drew 15,000 people to Public Square, mainly women.


A Democrat and former U.S. Sen of Illinois who was term-limited, Obama left office in 2017, his predecessor, President Donald Trump, causing a stir with his policies, his racist remarks against Haitians and people of color in general, a tax plan passed by congress that subordinates working and middle class people and seniors,  draconian immigration policies steeped in bigotry, and the list goes on.


The former president and former first lady both gave farewell speeches in January of last year.


Michelle Obama, like her husband, delivered a scholarly farewell speech, one that reveals her background as a Princeton University undergraduate and Harvard Law School graduate who has not forgotten her blue collar roots.


"No matter where they're from, how much money their parents have, no matter what they look like, or who they love, or how they worship or what language they speak at home, they have a place in this country," Michelle Obama said during her farewell speech at a podium at the White House while flanked by a group of school counselors, one of whom received the School Counselor of the Year award, an award handed out via the first lady's Reach Higher initiative to encourage post-secondary education.


"Being your first lady has been the greatest honor of my life," she said. "And I hope I made you proud."


She highlighted her farewell speech with a call for America's youth to keep the faith and to make a positive difference in the world.


"Don't be afraid. You here me young people? said First Lady Obama. "Be focused. Be determined. Be empowered."


Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama, 53, was born Jan 17, 1964 and was raised by her blue collar parents along with her older brother, Craig Robinson, on the south side of Chicago.


She is a graduate of Princeton University, where she earned a bachelor's degree in sociology,  and she earned a law degree from Harvard Law School in 1988.


She met the former president, who is four years older, in their younger years, before he became famous, and as his boss at the Chicago law firm of Sidley Austin.


They married in 1992 and have two daughters, Malia and Sasha, the youngest to initially reside in the White House since Amy Carter.


Michelle Obama was an active and likable first lady whose approval ratings reveal the love and respect she has garnered from the American public since stepping into the White House with President Obama in 2009.


A USA Today/ Gallup Poll taken the week she gave fer farewell speech says 79% of Americans approve of  Michelle Obama.


The former first lady stood by her husband's side, before and after she helped him become president, the highest office in the nation.


She campaigned for then U.S. senator Barack Obama, a former Illinois state senator and community organizer on Chicago's south side, throughput 2007 and 2008, delivering a keynote address at the 2008 Democratic National Convention.


And she rallied for President Obama relative to his reelection bid in 2012, and spoke at the 2012 Democratic National Convention.


She returned to the campaign trail during the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia and delivered a dynamic speech in support of the then Democratic presidential nominee, and former first lady, Hillary Clinton, who lost to Trump, a Republican,  in a contentious general election in November of 2016. (References relative to the above two paragraphs from Wikipedia.com.)


A loyal Democrat like Barack and Michelle Obama, Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election to now President-elect Donald Trump, the Republican nominee and a billionaire real estate mogul.

CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM-CLEVELAND, Ohio- The Central Committee of the Cuyahoga County Democratic Party on Thursday appointed Michael Houser to replace former county councilman Anthony Hairston to represent District 10 on Cuyahoga County Council.


Houser, who is Black, had a host of support, including from County Councilwoman Shontel  Brown, also the chair of the Cuyahoga County Democratic Party, the party's first Black and first female chairperson.


Hairston was elected in November to the ward 10 seat on Cleveland City Council.


District 10 includes parts of Cleveland in wards 8 and 10, and all of East Cleveland, Cleveland Heights, University Heights and the village of Bratenahl.


A former candidate for state representative who worked as a special assistant to the chief of staff of County Executive Armond Budish, Houser, 26, joined his supporters, including Hairston, for a celebration at the Chicago's Home of Chicken and Waffles in downtown Cleveland.


His new job as a member of the 11-member county council, a separate and distinct entity from Cleveland City Council, is part-time and pays $45,000 a year.


Other candidates seeking the district 10 county council seat vacated by Hairston were community activist Rico Dancy, Cleveland Heights Councilwoman Cheryl Stephens, who is a CEO at the East Akron neighborhood Development Corporation, and Brian Davis, the former director of the Northeast Ohio coalition for the homeless.


Houser is a native of Cleveland and holds a bachelor's degree from Kent State University and a master's of public administration from Cleveland State University.


Because Hairston vacated his county council seat two years into his four-year term it is up for grabs for this year's election, including as to Houser, if he runs for election, the primary election of which is in May and the general election in November.
