On Wednesday, first lady Michelle Obama told a group of young Africans “brothers” and “sisters” that the “the blood of Africa runs through my veins.”

At the speech for a summit of young African leaders and innovators, Obama said, “The roots of my family tree are in Africa. My husband’s father was born and raised in Kenya. Members of our extended family still live there. I have had the pleasure of traveling to Africa many times over the years, including four trips as first lady, and I have brought my mother and my daughters along whenever I can.”
