am a black mother of 6 and have read this poem to each of my children. It
shows the importance of your past and the appreciation of your future. To
know where you come from and where your going. It's been a long road and
journey my dark children but keep on going

I am in high school and my stupid teacher asked us to do a research paper
on a poem we like. I chose "The Negro Mother" because it reminds me of the
struggle that African Americans faced, and how there are those mothers out
there that want us to live better lives, so they tell us to press on and
become better people and let nothing nor anyone keep us down.

The Negro Mother is a very emotional and heart reaching poem. I really
enjoyed performing it 4 my class.

I am an african living in the arabian gulf...I dont really relate to the
contents of this poem much,but I see a common problem.I read this poem and
all i could think of was"what about the Arabs being driven out of their own
land???who thinks about them??"
anyway this poem is my favourite ever because i really understand it..i see
it..i feel it.

I am not a big fan of poetry but i definately love this poem.I was really
touched by this poem because it talks about how the black race was treated
and is still treated today. Despite the fact that the black race was
treated that way they still periviered and became free men.
