Barack Obama Presidential Library Honors the Legacy of Cokie Roberts
November 13, 2019
Today, the National Archives Foundation remembers the life and legacy of Cokie Roberts through its Records of Achievement Award Presentation and Tribute Program, as well as the launch of the Cokie Roberts Research Fund for Women’s History. Cokie Roberts served on the Board of Directors of the National Archives Foundation for 17 years, up until her death in September 2019.
The Barack Obama Presidential Library joins the National Archives and Records Administration family in remembering Cokie by sharing the following video from our holdings. In this video, Cokie moderates a conversation with Mrs. Obama and Mrs. Laura Bush at the United States-Africa Leaders Summit Symposium for African Spouses in 2014.
