Maya Angelou: A Biography of an Award-Winning Poet and Civil Rights Activist

Black History Month looks back at the life of this extraordinary and inspirational woman. Her parents soon divorced and her mother, unable to cope with two small children, sent Maya and her brother Bailey Junior to live with their grandmother, who kept a general store in the Black section of Stamps, Arkansas. But, though mute, she read voraciously and was ultimately persuaded to speak again by a friend of her grandmother who recognised her passion for poetry and told her that, to be experienced fully, it had to be spoken aloud.

At the age of 16 she gave birth to her only child, a son, after a loveless one-night stand undertaken largely in a spirit of inquiry. Before long she had embarked on an extraordinary career that included stints as a dancer, waitress, prostitute and pimp.

Who was Maya Angelou?

She became an actress and singer, recorded an album of Calypso songs, appeared on Broadway and travelled to Europe in a touring production of Porgy and Bess. Along the way she acquired two or possibly three husbands she was always a little vague about the facts , and took her surname from the first, an aspiring Greek musician called Enistasios Angelos.

Later she took her son to Ghana, where she met the Black activist Malcolm X. She returned to the United States in to work with him, but he was killed shortly afterwards. A few years later Martin Luther King too was assassinated. When those two men were killed we all stumbled about like blinded moles. It was really disastrous for Black Americans.
