Black Mothers to Sons: Juxtaposing African American Literature With Social Practice
Peter Lang Pub Incorporated, Jan 1, 1990 - Literary Collections - 132 pages
This book combines a literary and sociological analysis of black mother to son relationships. The authors focus on the extraordinary struggles of black mothers in literature and real life who attempt to teach their sons not only to survive, but also to transcend the obstacles that black people encounter in American society. This study breaks new ground by using an innovative Afrocentric methodology to reveal definite connections between African American poetry, fiction, and black family life.
