The paper explores the early black rap music and the literature of African-American women such as Maya Angelou that sheds light on the sacrifices and plight of the black woman since emancipation. The paper attempts to determine the feminist movement's gains, if any, since the 1970s. The paper discusses the heightened awareness of the problems surrounding the absent father in black families and the rejection of black women by black men. The paper concludes that voices need to be heard, but we need contemporary figures to emerge as role models and effectors of change in bringing about a new opportunity for black mothers and their children.
