It’s possible that one of those “acts” that needed a do-over was Lady M’s. Because here’s how the original BET post reports Lady M’s remarks:

“Maya Angelou teaches us that it’s not enough merely to seek greatness for ourselves. We must help others discover the greatness within ourselves,” the first lady added. (BET quote)

“Maya Angelou teaches us that it’s not enough merely to seek greatness for ourselves. We must help others discover the greatness within ourselves,”

Butt here’s how the Chicago Tribune reports the same comment:

It is not enough merely to seek greatness for ourselves, we must help others discover greatness within themselves.” (Chicago Tribune quote)

Odd, I thought that's exactly what Christ taught us long before there ever was an "Angelou".

I thought we were post-racial ? Was Laura Bush invited to speak on Black television ?

And as far as the quote, remember - these people are trying to establish THEMSELVES as “Our Savior” (Whatever grammatical notations can be added that makes it so that statement disgusts me)

And that’s a photo from Getty Images. Getty Images allow none of their photos to be posted to Free Republic.
