In the tradition of Maya Angelou's Phenomenal Woman, best-selling author Pearl Cleage brings us an inspiring, celebratory poem for all women, destined to become a classic. Cleage considers the poem, which served as the centerpiece at Oprah's Legends Ball, as a continuation of an oral tradition that encompasses the entire history of the African-American experience. The praise poem acknowledges the legacy of those who have gone before and a realization "that we are part of something better, truer, deeper."
