Maya Angelou has led an extraordinary life in extraordinary times. From the "wrong side of the tracks" in Stamps, Arkansas, to dancing in an acclaimed international tour of "Porgy and Bess", to working for the offices of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in support of Dr. King, to composing and reading a poem for the inauguration of U.S. President Bill Clinton, to being honored with the highest civilian honor in the nation when in 2011 President Barack Obama awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom, she has risen to become one of our nation's most beloved and revered Elders.
This is book #3 of what is now a 6 book series:
"I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings" 1969
"Gather Together in My Name" 1974
"Singin' and Swingin' and Gettin' Merry Like Christmas" 1976.
"The Heart of a Woman" 1981
"All God's Children Need Traveling Shoes" 1986
"A Song Flung Up to Heaven" 2002
As one reads her 6 book autobiography, one is pulled back again and again to reflect in awe upon the grace and the power of this amazing woman. She truly is an Elder in our American tribe who understands the power of words. I am certain there was a time in my life when I didn't know of Maya Angelou, but I can't seem to remember when that was. Her rich, contralto voice has lived in my head and reminded me from time to time that strength comes from the quiet places and that "rising" requires a firm sense of roots and grounding. If in over the course of my life I can learn 1/10 of what she has to teach I will have done well.
