Becoming also picks up where that story left off by following her on the 34-city tour that she undertook while promoting her book. "Those months I spent travelling, meeting and connecting with people in cities across the globe drove home the idea that what we share in common is deep and real and can't be messed with."
"In groups large and small, young and old, unique and united, we came together and shared stories, filling those spaces with our joys, worries and dreams. We processed the past and imagined a better future. In talking about the idea of 'becoming', many of us dared to say our hopes out loud," Michelle Obama
said in a statement.
The former first lady also addressed the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. "It's hard these days to feel grounded or hopeful, but I hope that like me, you'll find joy and a bit of respite in what Nadia has made. Because she's a rare talent, someone whose intelligence and compassion for others come through in every frame she shoots."
"Most importantly, she understands the meaning of community, the power of community, and her work is magically able to depict it," she added.
