I read this book when I was in a dark place-trying to find my place in society, community and in my 'family'. I found it challenging, shocking and healing. Since then, I have been addicted to Maya Angelo's writing as she speaks deep from her soul. In 'I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings' Maya Angelo speaks from the heart as she recounts her childhood. She writes from a child's point of view and from her perspective as an adult. The themes and the lived experiences that emerge are of racism, segregation, slavery, sexual and emotional abuse, displacement, separation and resistance.
I look forward to sharing this book with you.
