This poem holds the strength to transform perspectives and yet provide a
song of hope. It is a commendable piece of literature.

My instuctor gave me an assignment about "The Negro Mother" This poem is
one of the best poem ever. It is very deep. This poem reminds me of what my
mother use to tell me when I was little.

My daugter had to do a poem collage for her teacher and she had chose this
one. When I read this poem I just fell in love with it, as my child always

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.
