While I am yet to be a mother my self, this book clearly showcases the love and respect between a mother and daughter. Although their relationship could be turbulent at times, and they could be rash and harsh, it was showed up by admiration and appreciation. Beyond this relationship, there were tales of Maya's life as a Negro growing up in racial and violent settings and I loved that she had supporters who encouraged her never to give up.
