All God's Children Need Traveling Shoes


Description for ALL GOD'S CHILDREN NEED TRAVELING SHOES by Maya Angelou:

In 1962 the poet, musician, and performer Maya Angelou claimed another piece of her identity by moving to Ghana, joining a community of "Revolutionist Returnees" inspired by the promise of pan-Africanism. ALL GOD'S CHILDREN NEED TRAVELING SHOES is her lyrical and acutely perceptive exploration of what it means to be an African American on the mother continent, where color no longer matters but where American-ness keeps asserting itself in ways both puzzling and heartbreaking. As it builds on the personal narrative of I KNOW WHY THE CAGED BIRD SINGS and GATHER TOGETHER IN MY NAME, this book confirms Maya Angelou’s stature as one of the most gifted autobiographers of our time.
