1. Where are the Gaither sisters traveling in "Cassius Clay Clouds"? How do they feel about their trip?
The girls are traveling to Oakland in order to see their mother, whom they have not seen in seven years. None of the girls are thrilled about it, because their mother abandoned them as infants.
2. How would you describe the relationship between the Gaither sisters, Pa, and Big Ma?
Delphine, Vonetta, and Fern are very close with one another, though they argue and fight as sisters sometimes do, and they are very close with their father and grandmother, both of whom worry incessantly about the girls.
3. Why does Big Ma worry about the girls' trip?
Big Ma is especially worried about how the Oakland experience will be for the girls, because their mother, Cecile, is so selfish and crazy. While family is at its best among the Gaithers, family is at its worst when it comes to Cecile.
