Abstract

“Perhaps most significant is that Miz Rain positions herself as a role model for [Precious] Jones. In Jones’ aberrational family unit, problematic public schooling, and racism- infused Harlem microcosm, Jones has never before had someone in her own life to play that role. Miz Rain marks the first person in Jones’ world who has built a successful life for herself, and Jones’ esteem for Miz Rain fuels Jones’ learning.”
