Answers

Words are powerful, though many are not consciously aware of the fact. Those who are aware of it are able to use it as a tool to manipulate and persuade large groups of people to their cause. This is the case in Coming of Age in Mississippi with Anne Moody. She never saw herself as a writer, but as an activist. She understood the power of language and story and used this to further her political agenda.
