You NEED to Watch ‘Black Woman Steps Up to Mic’ RIGHT NOW by Clutch

Sha’Condria Sibley’s poem, “Black Woman Steps Up to Mic” is everything. And yes, that word gets used for, well, everything these days, but Sibley’s award-winning piece fits the bill.

In her poem, which she performed at the this year’s Texas Grand Slam, Sibley takes on the misconceptions and stereotypes about Black women that do little but make us feel under siege.

Sibley powerfully spits:

Sibley later proclaims, “Black woman is even afraid to call herself Black woman too many times in this poem because she has been taught that she is too insignificant to be acknowledged.”

Well, damn.

“As a black woman with a big name,” Sibley told Fusion she wrote the poem for “people who may have been guilty of not listening to someone based off their initial presentation.”
