Dir: Bob Hercules & Rita Coburn Whack

"a vivid and moving portrait of an African-American icon." - Newsday

An icon of politics and culture, Dr Maya Angelou had a prolific life; as a singer, dancer, activist, poet, and writer she inspired generations of people to think about their history in a way they never had before.

In this intimate and personal portrait of Angelou, the film weaves her words with rare archival photographs and videos to paint the story of her 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 poem for President Bill Clinton, filmmakers Bob Hercules and Rita Coburn Whack have crafted a touching and moving tribute to her legacy.
