This is an interview with the iconic Maya Angelou. She is an award-winning writer, poet, and lyricist. She is known for her unique tone in her poetry such as, “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings”, and how she relates most of her poetry to the African-American culture.

She has written a total of 7 biographies including her new autobiography called “Mom & Me & Mom”, a story of her relationship with her mother and the time she spent with her. She also speaks of her upcoming 85th birthday. She speaks briefly on her past works and makes the inspiring comment that basically states that even though she has had so much success she still wants the write so that everyone can understand it.

This woman is a remarkable writer and historical figure to be looked at and embraced as what it means to write with a purpose of something other that some kind of profit.
