Synopsis :

Former USA Today columnist Kristin Clark Taylor has put together a love song to African American mothers. As she writes in the Introduction: "to any mother who ever kissed a scraped knee; broke up a playground fight; spent part of the rent money on a pair of badly needed Buster Browns; preserved a memory; instilled in her young one an everlasting image of racial pride; or encouraged in her child imaginative, courageous thinking...To black mothers everywhere who guided our feet and showered us with an unconditional love that has sustained our spirit, enriched our lives, opened our hearts and kept us strong. To the heroic black mothers who have withstood pain and indignity, suffering and sacrifice--all for the good of their children--this book praises your existence and your memory."

In nine finely hewn chapters filled with quotes, poems, and vintage photographs, the black mother is seen in her many roles: "Giver of Life," "Spiritual Anchor," "Disciplinarian," "Wise Teacher," "Provider and Comforter," "Image of Beauty," "Loving Surrogate," and finally "Keeper of the Flame." An elegant gift book that will be treasured by all who receive it, Black Mothers is a visually and emotionally uplifting celebration of African American motherhood.

Review:

Kristin Clark Taylor is a former senior White House advisor, corporate public relations executive, journalist, and author of The First to Speak: A Woman of Color Inside the White House. In Black Mothers, she has produced a beautiful book honoring the love and longevity of African American mothers. It contains intimate photographs and quotes from a host of writers, poets, and celebrities such as Toni Morrison, Marian Wright Edelman, Johnnie Cochran, Maya Angelou, Sonia Sanchez, and Gloria Naylor. "Black mothers leave a legacy of strength and sustenance for their children," she writes. "It is part of who we are, and who our foremothers were. If we listen very closely, we can still hear their words of wisdom." Taylor unveils the full spectrum of black motherhood in nine chapters: Giver of Life, Spiritual Anchor, Powerful Protector, Comforter and Friend, Wise Teacher, Living Surrogate, Image of Beauty, Disciplinarian, and Keeper of the Flame. These chapters offer soul-stirring images: mothers nursing their babies, reading to and educating their children, and preparing meals for the family. The book also features African American folklore and anonymous sayings such as "I brought you into this world, child. And Lord knows I can take you out," and "What are the most frightening words in the English language when they come from Mama's mouth? Go out and get me a switch!" The book's overall theme is the ancestral debt the African American community owes to these women for maintaining its very existence from slavery to freedom. Maya Angelou put it best: "I lay down in my grave and watch my children grow proud blooms above the weeds of death." --Eugene Holley Jr.
