Abstract:

Following acclaimed poet and memoirist Maya Angelou on a visit to her childhood surroundings in Stamps, Arkansas, this Bill Moyers interview remains a classic of broadcast journalism and a valuable teaching tool for African-American studies. "I was terribly hurt in this town," Angelou tells Moyers, "and vastly loved." She recalls her rapturous discovery of Shakespeare (while savoring a favorite sonnet's opening line) and the power poetry gave her over the traumas of earlier years. She speaks to a hushed church congregation and a racially diverse elementary school class; she shares memories with long-lost friends and discusses family history with a wizened acquaintance of her grandmother. Gradually, viewers gain a glimpse of the relationship between Angelou's origins, her creative process, and her prolific output.
