Read by the Author, Maya Angelou

Also available on cassette

Superbly told--with the poet's gift for language and observation, and charged with the unforgettable emotion of remembered anguish and love--this remarkable autobiography by an equally remarkable black woman from Arkansas captures, indelibly, a world of which most Americans are unaware of.

Synopsis:

Expand your poetry section with the works of one of America's leading literary greats — reissued on CD. Listen to the poems as they were meant to be heard — from the poet herself.

Synopsis:

She was born Marguerite, but her brother Bailey nicknamed her Maya ('mine'). As children, Maya and Bailey were sent to live with their grandmother is Stamps, Arkansas. Their early world revolved around this remarkable woman and the store she ran for the black community. Amidst the joys of Maya's childhood, the awful, unfathomable mystery of prejudice intruded. Then violence too, intruded upon Maya's world, when a visit to her mother ended in tragedy-rape. Thereafter, Maya refused to speak, except to the person closest to her, Bailey.
