About the Author
Maya Angelou, American poet, historian, educator, civil rights activist, and author of twelve best-selling books.
"The wisdom, rue and humor of her storytelling are borne on a lilting rhythm completely her own, the product of a born writer's senses nourished on black church singing and preaching, soft mother talk and salty street talk, and on literature: James Weldon Johnson, Langston Hughes, Richard Wright, Shakespeare and Gorki." -- The New York Times Book Review.
"Black, bitter and beautiful, she speaks of our survival." -- James Baldwin.
