Maya Angelou Biography - Poet, Memoirist, Novelist, Educator, Dramatist, Producer, Actress, Historian, Filmmaker and Civil Rights Activist
There is very little to be said about the life, times, opinions, and biography of Maya Angelou that hasn’t been said by Maya herself. Most of Angelou’s work was autobiographical, and in fact her published autobiographical and creative nonfiction works include four autobiographies (The collected autobiographies of Maya Angelou, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, Gather Together in My Name, A Song Flung up to Heaven, and All God’s Children Need Traveling Shoes), two collections of mostly- autobiographical poems (Celebrations: Rituals of Peace and Prayer, Phenomenal Woman), and even a cookbook that includes a short anecdote about her life with each recipe (Hallelujah: The Welcome Table), according to her official web site.
This is a biographical perspective of the life and writings of Maya Angelou and how she has been able to self-therapy while helping others through her writings. In fact, it's been an introspective that has fueled Maya's powerful writing and delivery over the years.
This biographical account will open you up to Maya Angelou's writings in a way you hadn't yet considered.
