Description
In her stunning six-volume memoir, Maya Angelou sweeps us along with searing insights and soul-baring honesty from her childhood in Stamps, Arkansas, in the 1930s and 40s to the moment in 1968 when she wrote the first lines of I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. In between, the birth of her son Guy at the end of World War II, her travels abroad with the cast of Porgy and Bess, her life in a black expatriate "colony" in Ghana, and her intense involvement with the civil rights movement—including her bittersweet associations with Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr.—allow Angelou to explore the best and worst of growing up and growing wise as a black woman in America. Awarded the National Medal of Arts, the Lincoln Medal, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, as well as more than 50 honorary degrees, Angelou has left an indelible impression on American culture and society, largely through her seven volumes of autobiography (including the late entry Mom & Me & Mom, from 2013), her five essay collections, and her poetry, plays, and screenplays.
