Kansas City-area students got to spend time Saturday with Michelle Obama, even though the first lady was half a world away.
About 40 middle- and high-schoolers gathered in a Google Fiber conference room for a globe-spanning video hangout with Obama, who also addressed students in New York, Houston and Los Angeles from an auditorium in Johannesburg, South Africa. She is on a trip with President Barack Obama.
The topic was education, and Michelle Obama reminded students what former South African President Nelson Mandela, now hospitalized with a persistent lung infection, had to say on the topic.
