Mom & me & mom

Angelou, Maya, 1928-20142013
Books, Manuscripts
This is the stunning portrait of Vivian Baxter Johnson: the first black woman officer in the Merchant Marines, purveyor of a gambling business and rooming house, and mother to one of our most cherished literary treasures. Anyone who's read the classic, 'I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings', knows Maya Angelou was raised by her paternal grandmother in Stamps, Arkansas. In 'Mom & Me & Mom', Angelou details what brought her mother to send her away and unearths the well of emotions Angelou experienced long afterward as a result.
