A Black Woman Can (Recited at the Black History Program)

A Black Woman can be anything
she puts her mind to be
she can help run a country
or be the richest woman on T.V.

She can even drop out of high school
but then get back on track
all while carrying the weight of her world
heavy on her back

She can lead generations to safety
bringing freedom; guided by a star
getting help from another race
as she traveled near and far

She can even make history
by being the first Black Woman millionaire
showing women how to take pride
in taking care of their hair

She can even go from silent mode
to inspiring the world through her words
never doubting herself, no matter
what she’d heard

A Black Woman can be anything
she puts her mind to be
and every Black Woman in this room
can make her own history.
