You have given us African women the courage and the hope to move on and up. You keep your head high and hold your husband close to your heart. Keep praying my sister, you are the best. You have lived the dream of every ebony woman. Ride on sister, we are with you. I sat next to my daughter, praying that all women would tell this message to themselves, their daughters and sisters, nieces and neighbors, mothers, grandmothers, aunts, friends and sisterfriends, strangers and mates.
But most of all, I thank you from the bottom of my heart to remind me to keep being hopeful so I can keep flapping my wings and not be afraid to fly. I'd given up hope. I'd given up hope that Black men could affectionately and passionately adore a woman publicly the way that your old man adores you.
I'd given up hope that I'd get to keep my booty and succeed in the commercial production world of NYC. I honestly didn't believe I'd be able to be intelligent and sexy at the same time and be taken seriously You two have revolutionized what I believe to be possible in Black life. Black, young, sexy, beautiful, brilliant, and powerful. How marvelous. I rejoice for every little girl, every teenager, young adult and yes even every senior, who like me, can look at you and see herself. I rejoice for the mothers who loved their children as much as you and I do, yet could not protect them.
Shortly after the election, the Uncrowned Queens Institute in Buffalo, New York, sent out a call across the country for African American women to share their hopes, fears, and advice with the new First Lady. Hundreds of letters and poems poured in, signaling both an unprecedented moment in our nation's history and a remarkable opportunity for African American women to look at the White House and see and speak to one of their own there. These very personal letters and poems, written by African American women from all ages and walks of life, celebrate a newfound hope for our world and children, speak to a strong sisterhood with the First Lady, confess often very private fears and dreams, and acknowledge and remember the generations before who endured so much for so long.
But we have yet to feel and recognize the full impact that black women have had on the cultural and political life of the United States. Those past and living generations those Uncrowned Queens will gather mystically at this moment: through the agency of this book She is a retired educator, counselor, and community and political activist.

I was a little worried at first that this book would be full of letters and poems that essentially repeat the same message, the same words of encouragement, the same feelings of pride. What I found instead was a surprisingly diverse range of black female voices, young and old, from different backgrounds and regions even overseas sharing their heartfelt reactions and perspectives on Michelle Obama.

I liked hearing from the older women who lived through segregation and I laughed out loud at some of the sistah-girls who gave the First Lady advice.
I've written about one specific poem that I particularly enjoyed at literaryobama. Apr 22, Patty rated it it was ok. I didn't finish this one. Although I think their heart was in the right place having African American women tell Michelle Obama what her being in the White House means to them I don't think they carried it off.
I think it would have been better served to have more "unknowns" and less well-off people writing. So, while I didn't hate it, it didn't hold my attenti I didn't finish this one. So, while I didn't hate it, it didn't hold my attention and it certainly didn't have enough variety to make it worthwhile for me to continue reading.
