This is a awesome poem I am a young, beautiful,black full figure women.
This should not only inspire black women but all women. Black, white,
spanish, asia, indian women. Beatiful women,ugly women , big or small
women. You can have snaggle tooth and one eye. But after reading this
poem you will feel like the most beautiful, one eyed snaggle tooth women

Phenomenal women that's me.

I am a puertorican woman who is proud of my race, I adore the fact that 1/3
of the blood that runs in my veins is the blood of my ancestors who were
black slaves. Maybe many people in the world don't know that "boricuas" are
a race that comes from three, spanish, "tainos (indians)" and black. And
let me say that our Flavor and Heart is all black...
It is incredible how you write Miss Maya, there is nothing that you had
wrote that I don't applaud with every fiber of my heart and soul.
Thank you Miss Maya for sharing the wonderful talent you have with all of
us and for making the women who read your material feel ....Phenomenal
Peace

When I read Phenomenal Woman I was moved ,because as a young African
American Woman I feel that we dont give ourselvs credit as to how beautiful
we are. Honestly I can Say that thanks to Maya Angelou being the voice of
black young ladies all over we no longer haft to hold our head down. I can
now walk high and talk low and still be heard by all man and woman alike.
THANK YOU MISS ANGELOU!!!!!!!!!!!!

Phenomenal Woman has become my mantra. Like Dr. Angelou I am also of
exceptional height and size, something that people never failed to bring to
my attention and not always in the positive either. Reading that poem gave
me a new outlook of myself...I embraced my inner woman, I now walk taller,
I feel beautiful and I am phenomenal. God Bless Dr. Maya..A Fabulous
Phenomenal Woman
