The Heart of a Woman
The Heart of a Woman is filled with unforgettable vignettes
of famous people, from Billie Holiday to Malcolm X, but perhaps most important
is the story of Maya Angelou's relationship with her son. Because this book
chronicles, finally, the joys and burdens of a black mother in America and how
the son she had cherished so intensely and worked for so devotedly finally
grows to be a man.
