AP) Michelle Obama speaks of 'hunger' for education
By BEN NUCKOLS
Associated Press
COLLEGE PARK, Md.

First lady Michelle Obama spoke passionately about the importance of education to the African-American community in a commencement address Friday, urging more than 600 graduates of Bowie State University to honor the school's history and to pass their commitment to education on to future generations.

In her 15-minute address, the first lady touched on the university's founding in 1865 to train black teachers; the difficulties confronted by black students after emancipation from slavery and during the civil rights movement; and the sacrifices made by her own parents, who were not college graduates.

"I am thinking about all the mothers and the fathers just like my parents, who dug into pockets for their last dime," Mrs. Obama said. "Their sacrifice is your legacy."
