“Maya Angelou was […] the closest thing that American has to a cultural saint. This […] canonizes her in cinema.” — Screen Daily

Referred to as “a redwood tree, with deep roots in American culture”, Maya Angelou gave people the freedom to think about their history in a way they never had before. As a singer, dancer, activist, poet, and writer she inspired generations with lyrical, modern African-American thought.

Dr. Angelou’s words are interwoven with rare and intimate archival photographs and videos, which show the hidden moments of her exuberant life during some of America’s most defining moments – from her upbringing in the Depression-era South, to her work with Malcolm X in Ghana, to her inaugural speech for President Bill Clinton. Her indelible charm and quick wit make it easy to love her.
