Slavery as bitter pill to swallow doesn‘t let the black women to provide nurturance and training to their children. Black women, as they become forced mothers by white hegemonic power, never have the ability and even the possibility to understand and follow the ancient properties and funk. The following article takes a look at dehumanizing effects of slavery and also shows how a woman like Sethe kills her daughter, though unacceptable in the eyes of community, as a way to end slavery.
