The cultural phenomenon, that is Dr. Maya Angelou shares her life story of a her untraditional bond, and her unique connection to her biological mother in her latest book: Mom & Me & Mom. Dr. Angelou gives a deeply personal and vividly rich description of her childhood, young adult years and shares her own challenges of being a mother in this fascinating page turner.
Being in the presence of Dr. Angelou will be a moment in my life I will never forget. To hear the sound of her voice speak so clearly and passionately about the importance of "words" and "love" seemed as if she was reciting one of her internationally acclaimed poems. At 85 years old she is an institution of knowledge and a true African American Griot. After reading this book, one cant help but feel a mysterious strength and venerability that it takes to be a parent, and unconditional heart it takes to truly love another human being.
