Highlights of Michelle Obama’s Remarks at Wednesday’s US-Africa Business Forum

At the final day of the US-Africa Business Forum in Washington this week, First Lady Michelle Obama and former First Lady Laura Bush joined Cokie Roberts to discuss educating women and girls.

The Washington Post’s Pamela Kirkland pulled together highlights of Obama’s remarks. Watch below.

Washingtonian’s Celebrate Kevin Spacey’s 55th Sans the Birthday Boy

house-of-cards-kevin-spaceyEarlier this week, Washingtonian covered a celebration for Kevin Spacey’s 55th birthday – which he turned last weekend – at the Capella rooftop. Guests sipped champagne and signed an oversized card for the “House of Cards” actor at the gathering hosted by AT&T lobbyist Lyndon Boozer and Ovation Foundation SVP Sonia Tower.

Some big names regionally were attendance, according to the Washingtonian piece, including Rachel Goslins, executive director of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, White House social secretary Jeremy Bernard and Heather Podesta, founder of Heather Podesta & Partners. Not in attendance, the birthday boy himself.

A FishbowlDC source close to Spacey said the actor hadn’t a clue the party was planned, and neither did his publicist.

Whether or not that’s the case, here’s to hoping he at least got the card!
