(AP) Michelle Obama says having a black family in the White House "changes the bar" for every child, regardless of race, sexual orientation or gender.


She tells Parade magazine in an interview appearing Sunday that her husband's presidency "expands the scope of opportunity" for children because that's where change happens.


The first lady also says she feels "immense hope" on the approaching 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech on Aug. 28.


Mrs. Obama, who turns 50 in January, said she's never felt more confident in herself as a woman and wants to be a "really fly" 80- or 90-year old.


As for her bangs, she says she doesn't sport them anymore because it's hard to give a speech when hair is in your face.
