Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton referring to American Tapestry: The Story of the Black, White, and Multiracial Ancestors of Michelle Obama By Rachel L. Swarns:
"You might have seen over the weekend a long story about Mrs. Obama’s roots going back to the time of our own period of slavery and the family that nurtured her, which has roots in the fields and the houses of a time when Americans owned slaves.  
"So as we recommit ourselves to end modern slavery, we should take a moment to reflect on how far we have come, here in our country and around the world, but how much farther we still have to go to find a way to free those 27 million victims and to ensure that there are no longer any victims in the future."
