I can recall being a part of showcase for the arts when I was in the eighth
grade. I recited this poem, from memory, dressed the part with my wool two
piece suit, my coffee stocking, my round toe dress shoes and my brim hat.
This poem is the most inspirational writings of all times. I am now in my
thirties and I still recite this poem because of the strength of the negro
mother, my battles seem simplistic. I encourage everyone who reads this
poem to share it with a friend. Remember that perserverance achieves

This peom is amazing. Growing in these times where things are so much
easier for black people, You never forget but it passes you and when you
read a peom like this it reminds you of the hard work black people went
through to give us what we have today. It really makes you think.

This poem always seems to move me each and every time I read it. The
words are so fierce and so true, that it digs into your soul and picks at
your spirit, making you laugh, cry, and think at the same time. Everyone
can relate to a poem like this. I love his work!!!!~OKC

this was the first poem i ever learned in school. i was in the 9th ra when
I did this poem that was 15 years ago and I can still remember every word
from this poem. It's funny cause I am a very dark woman and when I said
"look at my face dark as the night" all my friends began to laugh
but.....when i completed that poem I recived a stand O. It made me feel soo
good about myself.. I know this is a powerful poem cause my family still
remembeer bits and peices from it. I plan on doin it at my family reunion
this summer.
