Political Whispers: Michelle Obama’s Great-Great- Great-Grandmother’s Grave Vandalized
The police department in Georgia are investigating the apparent vandalizing of Michelle Obama’s great-great-great grandmother’s monument.
Michelle Obama’s great-great-great-grandmother, Melvinia Shields, monument was pushed over and will need to be inspected for cracks.
Ms. Shields was born into slavery in the mid-1800s and later settled in Rex, Ga., about 15 miles southeast of downtown Atlanta. The monument was placed there about a year ago, and the county commission organized a celebration later this month to recognize Shields’ connection to the White House.
