You don’t have a husband, but you’ve got a three month old baby…” (Angelou 47). All of a sudden, the reader is back in the present with Angelou, watching her mother dying in the next room. In facing her mother’s death, she tries to remember the lesson her mother taught about freeing loved ones. She shares more of her mother’s lessons in “The Rage Against Violence” and “Those Who Really Know Teach.” In “The Rage Against Violence,” she tells the story of her mother’s encounter with a possible attacker in a rundown ghetto apartment building. She learned from her mother that in order to overcome violence, we, as individuals and as a society, need to get made before we have the chance to get scared and become vulnerable. “Those Who Really Know Teach” is a funny story about a trip she and her mother took to the supermarket. Angelou shares the lesson that the older, wiser generations need to pass down their knowledge to the young, and the young need to listen and accept that wisdom, even if it is about cooking.
