Hansberry gives us many examples of her caring nature, starting when she first enters the play, when she takes care of her plant. The plant is old and withering because it doesn’t recieve much light; however, Mama never gives up on her plant. This plant symbolizes the love for her family, even though they do not always have the right intentions at heart, she loves them and tries to nurture them back to health. Another prime example of her caring nature is how she treats Travis, her grandson. She “babies” him in a way, like when he does not make up his bed at first she questions why it is not made, but then she makes it for him.

This means, not giving in to her splurges, my way of making sure she will not grow up spoiled,

Poverty was almost like a curse given to Rosa Vargas by her husband, who “left without even leaving a dollar for bologna or a note explaining how come” (29).

Even if she did have the time, her ethnicity and gender would be cause for discrimination.

So in turn, Chris ended up being fed up and couldn’t handle the stress, which concluded with him to leave.
