Battling racial discrimination, poverty, and the challenges of single motherhood, Maya Angelou fought to become one of the most respected writers of her time. She is credited with many firsts, from being the first black woman on the nonfiction bestseller lists with I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, to becoming the first black woman to voice her poetry at an American presidential inauguration in 1993. She has been awarded more than fifty honorary degrees and a Pulitzer Prize nomination. This is the intriguing story of a remarkable woman whose writing continues to inspire and entertain with humor, grace, and intelligence.
