A conversation with Maya Angelou and revisiting Detroit
In what would become one of her final interviews, World Footprints enjoyed a intimate chat with “Global Renaissance Woman” Dr. Maya Angelou. Dr. Angelou shared some wisdom, insights and stories from her incredible life’s journey, including the transitional relationship with her mother Vivian Baxter. Her mother shared messages of courage, hope, forgiveness and unlimited possibilities and those messages are what Dr. Angelou attributed to many of her life’s blessings. Dr. Angelou joined us to talk about her last book “Mom & Me & Mom” and she generously offered nuggets of wisdom for everyone. Dr. Angelou’s time with us was the most memorable interaction we’ve ever experienced and we greatly miss her presence.
We continue along the heart’s path and take a short trip to a city that is near and dear to us–Detroit, where we share the city’s great comeback and one of the greatest reinvention stories in America. Finally we chat with a dear friend, artist Michele Wood – a Coretta Scott King award-winning illustrator whose work is displayed in her book “I See the Rhythm of Gospel”
