There I was minding my own business, just checking the twitter when I saw an exchange that about made me spit out my brewed cocoa. To set the stage, Ekpe Udoh tweeted this out to his followers on the 8th of February:
Autobiography of Malcolm X, Becoming, or The Sun Does Shine?!#Ekpesbookclub— Ekpe Udoh (@EkpeUdoh) February 9, 2019
Ekpe was trying to get a consensus on what book to read for the month of February as he usually does when setting up the next book of his club. But then yesterday afternoon, Grammy presenter and past First Lady, Michelle Obama ANSWERED THE FREAKING BELL, Y’ALL.
She actually responded to this while she’s probably rubbing shoulders with Grammy nominated artists and celebrities. She chose to reach out to Ekpe Udoh!!!! Needless to say, Ekpe was surprised.
And, of course, he graciously would accept her vote.
Of course, no voter suppression here! We will read Becoming next.— Ekpe Udoh (@EkpeUdoh) February 10, 2019
At #Ekpesbookclub we encourage the thoughts of individuals from all walks of life. It would be an honor if you could stop by for a discussion or join our twitter discussion. https://t.co/wFHSXKzd0H
With the former First Lady’s vote in tow, Ekpe Udoh released the final voting numbers.
We are still doing "The Autobiography of Malcolm X" first then Becoming. Books have been ordered and schedule will arrive tomorrow...#Ekpesbookclub— Ekpe Udoh (@EkpeUdoh) February 11, 2019
Today’s going to be a good day, y’all. Also, get your books ready, Michelle Obama might be coming.
