Being an early African American actress, included moments of outcries & burst
That ended with pride & joy, on being so many of our first

Like the first African to win an Oscar, for the movie Gone With the Wind
Opening doors ajar for minorities like there has never been

The first African woman, to sing on the radio
Showing we meant something then, still, a long way to go

Being the first African, to have a postage stamp
A shining African star, like a bright candle lamp

This strong woman of color, who struggled to live her life
Breaking through barriers, cutting them like a knife

Admiration for her, grows each and every year
To see how far we’ve come after hard fought tears

So Hattie McDaniel, is the actress I love most of all the famous names
This child born of slaves now with two stars on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame
