For years I have read and heard several renditions of Dr. Angelou's poem and autobiographical works. Her writing has an incredible way of inhabiting the souls of reader, audience and artist alike. Her work is distinctly cultural and at the same time universally embracing.
This Audible selection is an example of how content delivered in digitized sound can actually give an authentic voice to the artist and the voice that takes up residence in the artist. When I played this entire selection I felt as if I had a private audience with Dr. Angelou. The sung robustness of her musical references in "Pulse of the Morning", the girly glee in her 7 women poem and her sensitive, yet unapologetic, teasing directed at male listeners easily revealed the range of her artistry and wisdom. What a treat!
I intend to include this work as part of a professional series for adults working in children in out-of-school time settings. It is lush with musical, literary, dramatic and cultural gems that can enrich creativity in young people and those who work with them.
Simply beautiful. I can't wait to play it again! C. Travis

Might make you cringe, should make you stupidly grin, short it is but wasn't Napoleon and look at him.
Brutally honest observations comfortably spoken in this age, when they may not have been in a previous one.
