On Being Phenomenal

You are phenomenal
You are quite phenomenal.
It is a marvelous thing,
Yes…
And the reason you are phenomenal,
I suggest young women, is because you come
from a phenomenal people.
That is really so…
It is wise to remember where you came from.
It is always wise.

– Maya Angelou, Spelman College Commencement 1983
