First Lady Michelle Obama traveled to Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa and Gaborone, Botswana during an official visit to Africa. During the trip, from June 21 – 26, Mrs. Obama delivered the keynote address to a U.S.-sponsored Young African Women Leaders Forum in South Africa. Forum participants included young women from across sub-Saharan Africa who are leading or involved in social and economic initiatives in their own countries. The Forum builds on the Obama Administration’s ongoing engagement with the next generation of African leaders and the momentum of the August 2010 President’s Forum with Young African Leaders held at the White House.
