Description

In this beautiful exploration of her life in 1960s Africa, Maya Angelou reaffirms her stature as one of the most gifted authors of our time. In 1962, this poet, actress, and professor claimed another piece of her identity by moving to her ancestral home in West Africa. At first, Angelou experiences the joy of being black among so many others who are also black, the excitement of politics and parties, and the beauty of an unspoiled land. But American-ness keeps asserting itself in ways both heartbreaking and bewildering.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Narrator Lynne Thigpen is the perfect choice to recount this poetic autobiographical sketch of Maya Angelou's visit to Africa in the '60's. Thigpen possesses the same rich contralto as Angelou, a melodious, flexible, simply beautiful voice. Her talent extends from a compassionate telling of Angelou's experiences to true character development through subtle tribal accents and various intonations and language patterns. Thigpen's portrayals encompass moods, as well as the essence of the person, be it a self-important Islamic male or a conceited, uncooperative female secretary. Angelou's astute observations and keen perceptions, her personal growth and self-realization, and her defining of her place in the world are all strongly brought out by Thigpen with humor, grace, and reverence.

        March 4, 1986
        To read Angelou's book, the latest in a series of autobiographical works begun with I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, without being moved would seem impossible. Here, this American poet, actress, civil rights activist and TV producer-director recalls her pilgrimage to Ghana in the early 1960s. Ostensibly, Angelou went there so that her son could study at the University of Ghanato put him (and herself) in touch with long-imagined ancestral roots. Sadly, she was disillusioned by the subtle rejection of native Ghanaians. Fighting this painful sense of not belonging, she plunged into activities; appearing in Genet's play The Blacks with black American performers, she went briefly to Berlin, where she underwent a searing experience dining in the home of a wealthy crypto-Nazi German. Other encounters, even the more pleasurable ones, hardly mitigate the homesickness and hurt underlying Angelou's poignant recall, which includes a meeting with Malcolm X and her visit to a village where, centuries ago, black men sold other black men, women and children to white slave traders. First serial to Essence.
