All God's children need traveling shoes
Reissued in hardcover with an elegant new jacket, this autobiographical work takes Maya to Ghana, where she joins a community of black Americans. In a vivid celebration of the sights, sounds, and feelings of Africa, Maya Angelo also explores what it means to be an African-American on the mother continent, where color no longer matters, but where American-ness asserts itself in ways both puzzling and heartbreaking.
