Abstract: The cross-cultural and Global ties that bind together women of all generations are mediated through common experiences of pain and pleasure; hope and despair; rise and fall which together constitute the concept of Motherhood. As a concept and phenomenon in transit from the African communities to the African American familial and societal structures of contemporary times, Motherhood has remained as a potent symbol of empowerment among women who resisted the onslaught of male dominance within every sphere of individual and societal existence. Cultural and critical dialectics reveal that considerations of motherhood whether out of choice or under force had remained steadfastly matrilineal. The figure of the Black Mother was subjected to a complex multi-dimensional study, and she came to be recognized as a “Superhuman” – “a figure denied the luxuries of failure, nervous breakdowns, leisured existences….” The paper attempts to probe into the personal experiences of Motherhood as recorded by Maya Angelou in her Memoirs and escalate those experiences to a generic appraisal of Motherhood within the sorority of Black Community. Angelou asserts that the issue of motherhood becomes integrally linked to the core of one’s own identity within the larger map of human existence. There is an infinite sense of contentment with which she writes her Memoirs. As a daughter to her mother and a mother to her son, she records the trajectory of her gain and loss with her characteristic nonchalance towards societal expectations.
