Dr. Angelou explores with callers from across the United States the theme of what it means to be an American. She talks to Valerie, an American of Irish-English-German descent and a mother of two, about her experiences as a lifelong resident of Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
Then Brenda, an African-American who hails from St. Louis and now resides in Maryland, talks to Dr. Angelou about her travels and adventures during the 20 years she spent with the United States Air Force.
Plus, Dr. Angelou is joined by Lucy, a Mexican-American who shares her personal story of being a single mother and following her dreams. Finally Chris, an American businesswoman of Polish-Scotch-Irish descent from Charlotte, North Carolina, talks about life after leaving an abusive marriage and starting her own business.
