 First lady Michelle Obama will address the opening night of the Democratic National Convention on Sept. 4, the Obama campaign and convention organizers announced today.

San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro — like the first lady and the president, a graduate of Harvard Law — will deliver the keynote speech that evening, organizers said. Castro will be the first Latino tapped for a keynote speech at a Democratic National Convention, they said.
