    • POEM: Caged Bird by Maya Angelou (12/8/2009 10:48:00 AM)

      Background knowledge about any subject will hinder the ignorant critic. As they say, 'It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.'

      **************************************

      I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings is the 1969 autobiography about the early years of African-American writer and poet Maya Angelou. The first in a six-volume series, it is a coming-of-age story that illustrates how strength of character and a love of literature can help overcome racism and trauma. In the course of Caged Bird, Maya transforms from a victim of racism with an inferiority complex into a self-possessed, dignified young woman capable of responding to prejudice.
