“Becoming” follows former first-lady Michelle Obama on her journey through America and the White House as an African-American woman. The film is partly based on Obama’s bestselling memoir “Becoming,” which was released in 2018. From growing up in Chicago to attending Princeton University and becoming the First Lady to the 44th President Barack Obama, Obama reflects on her life, education and goals in her documentary. The film also follows her during her book tour in 2019, revealing a more authentic image of herself to viewers at home. “Becoming” teaches its audience about leadership, perseverance and racial discrimination.
