The Books That Inspired Maya Angelou

A Renaissance woman with a storied life as an author, professor, actress, and activist, Maya Angelou drew inspiration from the harsh realities of her life to become one of the most prominent voices in African-American and women's literature in the 20th century and beyond. These books inspired the lady who claimed, "Life doesn't frighten me at all."
