An obvious attempt to tug at the heartstrings of bleeding heart liberals.

On May 16, the eve of the 60th anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court decision that outlawed racial segregation in America’s public schools, Michelle Obama traveled to Topeka, Kansas, to visit the Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site.

As the first lady toured the site with Stephanie Kyriazis, its chief of interpretation and education, she posed for a striking photograph that serves as a stark reminder of the segregation era. The image, taken by White House photographer Chuck Kennedy, was posted to the White House Flickr feed this week.

After her tour, Mrs. Obama delivered an equally poignant speech to the graduating classes of Topeka’s high schools.
