Personal Fact of Maya Angelou

Maya Angelou was a distinguished writer who witnessed a lot of domestic crisis as a child. At the young age of seven, she faced abuse in the form of rape, by her mother’s boyfriend. Along with her older brother, she was forced to travel places while growing up, unable to settle down in one place for a long time. Despite having a difficult childhood and adolescence, her spirit did not take a beating. She began earning for herself as a cab driver, and then became a dancer and singer. Soon, she learnt several languages on a tour to Europe, and showed a keen interest in English literature.

She befriended established African-American writers, who motivated her to pursue writing as a career. Maya published her first autobiography, ‘I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings’, at the age of forty-one. The book received favourable reviews and she gradually became an established writer. She also acted in musicals, tried her hand at directing movies, and even writing and producing a documentary.

She is also known for her feminist beliefs, which are most evident through her famous poem, ‘Phenomenal Woman’. Having campaigned for many charitable causes, and made a mark as a poet, the death of this writer was mourned by many famous people
