I am a woman
Taller than most—man or woman
Stronger than many—men or women
Mother, preacher, teacher
Speaking out against slavery
Speaking our for women’s suffrage.

I am a black woman
A slave in my previous life
Reborn to serve God and mankind
And renamed to serve notice to all.

I am an American woman
Walking across the fields and
Claiming the fruits of freedom
For every man, woman, and child.
