This is Maya Angelou's "Still I Rise," which is a poem that reflects the oppression she faced and how she dealt with it. Mama would view her as a role model because Maya is not afraid to be who she is and she is proud of where she came from. Mama wants the pride of her family to live on through generations, and wants to feel just as worthy as white people. Maya's attitude would inspire Mama to realize all that she has done for her family and that her race is nothing to be ashamed of.
