Description
A visit to Washington, DC's National Portrait Gallery forever alters Parker Curry's young life when she views First Lady's Michelle Obama's portrait. When Parker Curry came face-to-face with Amy Sherald's transcendent portrait of First Lady Michelle Obama at the National Portrait Gallery, she didn't just see the First Lady of the United States. She saw a queen-one with dynamic self-assurance, regality, beauty, and truth who captured this young girl's imagination. Parker saw the possibility and promise, the hopes and dreams of herself in this powerful painting of Michelle Obama. A nearby museum-goer snapped a photo of the mesmerized Parker and it became an internet sensation, with Parker meeting the First Lady, making an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and sharing her experience about the importance of representation. An everyday moment became an extraordinary one that continues to resonate its power, inspiration, and indelible impact. Because, as Parker's mother Jessica Curry said, "anything is possible regardless of race, class or gender."
