Author Info
Maya Angelou
Before she began what was to become an extraordinary literary career, the writer and poet Maya Angelou--born Marguerite Angelou Johnson--was an actress and singer. Angelou grew up in Stamps, a segregated rural town in Arkansas. She began to write at the encouragement of friends, including James Baldwin, who had heard her tell stories of her unique childhood. Ms. Angelou read her poem, "On the Pulse of Morning", at President Clinton's inauguration in 1993. Angelou speaks French, Spanish, Italian and West African Fanti.
