President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama cover the November 2012 issue of EBONY magazine.
Here’s a few excerpts from the interview:
“African Americans were hit especially hard by the recession…but over the past 30 months, businesses have created 4.5 million new jobs.”
- “We created the first-ever White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African-Americans.”
On Health Care:
- “…the numbers of working poor who don’t have health care who are African-American or Latino are higher than the general population…the 30 million people who are going to be able to get health care for the first time…are going to be African-Americans.”
