The Last Black Unicorn
- By: Tiffany Haddish
- Narrated by: Tiffany Haddish
- Length: 6 hrs and 29 mins
Tiffany can't avoid being funny: it's just who she is. But The Last Black Unicorn is so much more than a side-splittingly hilarious collection of essays - it's a memoir of the struggles of one woman who came from nothing and nowhere. A woman who was able to achieve her dreams by reveling in her pain and awkwardness, showing the world who she really is, and inspiring others through the power of laughter.

Sad it ended
This book was amazingly raw. I loved it and I love Tiffany even more.
I NEVER revisit an audiobook but as soon as I’m done telling you how amazing this book was I’m going to restart it all over again.

A Song Flung Up to Heaven
- By: Maya Angelou
- Narrated by: Maya Angelou
- Length: 4 hrs and 44 mins
This is the next installment in a six volume autobiography that began more than thirty years ago with the appearance of I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. In A Song Flung Up to Heaven Maya Angelou describes her poignant encounters with Martin Luther King, Jr.; her work with the civil rights movement; and witnessing the Watts riots. Battered by the loss of revered black leaders, it takes writer James Baldwin to finally force her out of isolation with a dinner party that inspired her to write.
Being there is part of the strength of this book.

Maya is awesome
Exactly what I needed to hear. She showed me that 40 is an awesome age to start my next chapter
