Michelle Obama's farewell speech took place on January 6, 2017. Speaking at the 2017 School Counselor of the Year awards, the First Lady lived up to her much earned reputation for being an impassioned speaker who can move an entire auditorium to tears. In her speech, she made a not-so-veiled critique of her husband's successor, and urged the nation's young people to embrace diversity and "not ever let anyone make you feel like you don't matter, or like you don't have a place in our American story – because you do." Michelle Obama's farewell speech did not disappoint. Check it out.
