Poetry By and For Uncrowned Queens

In her poem, America's Uncrowned Queens, Drusilla Dunjee Houston honors all women who march through life "untrumpeted and unseen".  Her words inspired the name for the Uncrowned Queens project and set a precedent for us to work diligently toward honoring Western New York's unsung heroines.  

Like Drusilla, several of our Uncrowned Queens have written poetry or have inspired others to write poetry.  Below is a small sampling of the works of these remarkable women and men.

If you have a poem celebrating African American women and would like it considered for posting on the Uncrowned Queens Web site, please contact us at info@uncrownedcommunitybuilders.com.
