Summary

In this first volume of her autobiography, Maya Angelou beautifully evokes her childhood with her grandmother in the American south of the 1930s. She learns the power of the white folks at the other end of town and suffers the terrible trauma of rape by her mother's lover.

Maya Angelou's six volumes of autobiography are a testament to the talents and resilience of this extraordinary author. Loving the world, she also knows its cruelty. As a Black woman she has known discrimination and extreme poverty, but also hope and joy, achievement and celebration.
