January 26, 1892
Dream the Untried
Once upon a time a baby was born in the cold month of January
In 1892 on day 26 oh yes she arrived in a hurry
She would “Dream the Untried”!
She looked at the cotton fields and sighed.
“I know like a bird I was meant to fly
I CAN learn French and sail to France so I can try.
I CAN DO anything even when others are afraid
I will not quit until history is made”
Who am I?
"When she turned eighteen, Coleman took all of her savings and enrolled in the Oklahoma Colored Agricultural and
Normal University (now called Langston University) in Langston, Oklahoma. Bessie completed only one term before she ran out of money and was forced to return home."
