      “Becoming” is about Michelle’s childhood, her Ivy league education, her career, her abiding love for her husband and children and her country, her years at the White house, but above all, it is about a woman who steadfastly holds on to her identity in spite of being married to the most powerful man in the world/5(K).   Congress envisioned a white, Protestant and culturally homogeneous America when it declared in that only “free white persons, who have, or shall migrate into the United States” were eligible.
