Movements in space forward a journey; it may be a conflict with the test of time. When Afro-Americans were forcibly taken as slaves to the colonies of America; a journey of such kind called the infamous Atlantic passage had begun. Toni Morrison has given special efforts in remapping the events of African American cultural, social and historical movements from time to time. Beloved tells the heart–rending story of a mother-daughter relation and the violent means of resistance they adopted to defend their children by their passionate abhorrence of slavery. This paper deals chiefly with the womanhood especially mother-daughter relation that has never been subdued under the bitter circumstances of tenacity, resistance and insistence aroused as an outcome of the historical, political and social movements.
