Michelle Obama is going back to school – and taking Alicia Keys, Sheryl Crow and astronaut Mae Jemison with her.

The first lady is being joined by the women – as well as Denyce Graves, Kerry Washington, Debbie Allen, Maggie Daley, Lisa Leslie, Bobbi Brown, Dominique Dawes, Phylicia Rashad, Alfre Woodard, Penny Pritzker and Gen. Ann Dunwoody – to speak to students in Washington, D.C.-area high schools about setting career goals. The Thursday visits are part of Women’s History Month, reports The Washington Post.

Table manners alert: The special day will wrap up with dinner at the White House, not only for the guest speakers, but also for several students invited from the various schools.
