TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — First lady Michelle Obama says young people who've grown up with diversity must lead a national fight against prejudice and discrimination.  Sspeaking to high school graduates in Topeka yesterday (FRI)  that the historic Brown versus Board of Education ruling against school segregation is "still being decided every single day," and that it will take all of today's young people to help solve our nation's problems.




The first lady said young people have the power to improve society by opening their hearts and minds and speaking up for what they know is right and sharing the lessons of Brown.  She shared the stage with Kansas Governor Sam Brownback, Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins, and former U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius.
