The Sisters Review
I found this to be a nice introduction to Maya Angelo. You get a touch of her background, a hint of her beliefs and a small glance of what her writings will offer.
"POWERFUL AND PERSONAL"
Powerful. Personal. Challenging.
It's candor and cadence. I was moved by Maya Angelou's stories that exemplifies her thoughts, actions and ideals.
The depth of an interviewer. He drew answers from Maya like teasing a lollipop from dispenser.
'You make it and the rest is magic'
I loved this special just to hear Maya's calming yet forceful voice.
"Maya a legend!"
Great interview with Maya..She has really educate me over the years that you can do anything if you really want to!
"Cheerful and uplifting"
Yes, to further absorb the dialogue.
The explanation of how Maya became a voluntary mute, and how she was brought out of it by a respected elder.
The interview focuses on maintaining positive outlook.
Can't say the title is entirely fitting after one listen. Perhaps I've missed something.
